The 11-year-old, a medium to fast pace bowler, received her certificate at the Essex Women’s Awards’ presentation dinner held at the County Ground.

Austin has been playing cricket since she was four years old when her older brother, Toby Austin, started making her bowl at him.

As well as achieving the bowling award, she has just been selected to play next season for Essex U13s and is one of only eight players handpicked for the Emerging Players Programme.

The Bentley Cricket Club member took 3 wickets in her maiden game in May for Essex against Middlesex and her defining moment was taking a hat-trick of wickets against Buckinghamshire.

She was also the only girl in the Brentwood Prep A Cricket side and was presented with the Cricketer of the Year award by Headmaster Jason Whiskerd at the end of last term.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
