Amy Seddon has recently returned to her studies at Myerscough’s Emirates Old Trafford centre after representing France in the ICC T20 Women’s World Cup qualifiers at Desert Springs in Almeria, Spain.

16-year-old Amy has so far played 16 WT20 internationals, after making her international debut back in May, where she compiled an unbeaten 33 against Austria, the highest score of the game, to be named Player of the Match.

Amy then helped her side to wins against Sweden, Turkey, Jersey and Germany, that meant France were the European Division 2 Champions and moved on to the Women’s T20 Cricket World Cup Europe qualifying regional finals against Scotland, Netherlands & Italy, where Amy played in all six fixtures.

The all-rounder now regularly opens the bowling for her country and bats in the middle order.

In addition to her studies at Myerscough, Amy plays her club cricket for Sale in Greater Manchester.

A number of other recent Myerscough students have gone on to play cricket internationally and professionally.

They include Callum Flynn, who overcame cancer as a teenager, has become a World Cup winner after England won the ICRC T20 Tournament.

Mike Jones, who opens the batting for Durham in first class cricket, has played 12 ODIs and 4 T20 internationals for Scotland.

Other former students playing professionally include all rounder Luis Reece (Derbyshire), spinner Jack Morley (Lancashire), seam bowler Ben Gibbon (Worcestershire) and Hannah Jones (Lancashire and Manchester Originals).
