Liberty gets England call up!

Lowerhouses’ Liberty Heap has been called up to the England Women U19 squad for ICC U19 Women’s T20 World Cup 2023.

Well done Liberty – we are over the moon for you! What an achievement.


It’s the first time the best U19 cricketers have come together from the women’s game to compete in an ICC Global Event.

The tournament will be hosted by South Africa, and sees 16 countries competing from January 14 to January 29.

In addition to the 11 Full ICC Members, there are five Associates in the competition – Indonesia, Rwanda, Scotland, the UAE and the USA. England will be in Group B, alongside Pakistan, Zimbabwe and Rwanda.
