Kia Super League teams announce England player allocations

Surrey won the 2018 Kia Super League in Hove

The Kia Super League teams have announced their England Women and England Women’s Academy allocation for 2019.

Sophia Dunkley, Katie George and Linsey Smith have all moved up north, to Lancashire Thunder and Yorkshire Diamonds respectively.

Dunkley will be captained by international teammate Kate Cross, who was yesterday revealed as Thunder’s new skipper, while George and Smith will team up at Diamonds.

Women’s and Girls High Performance Manager Jonathan Finch said: “We need those players pushing for an England place to get as many chances as possible to test themselves under pressure.

“Sophia, Katie and Linsey will all benefit from having different roles at their new teams and we hope that that will allow them to keep pushing their game on and to further their international claims.”
