Leah lands spot on England Pathway
Sherburn's Leah Dobson has earned a place on the England Women's winter training pathway scheme for 2018/19.
She will attend 15 sessions at Loughborough from December to March.
The call-up follows a successful season with Yorkshire for Leah, who finished as the leading run-scorer for Yorkshire across all the women’s and girls age groups.
She represented the Women’s first and second teams along with the Under-17s, scoring 500 runs at an average of 38.
Leah said: “I am over the moon with this great news.
“Over the winter it will allow me to progress as a cricketer and hopefully in the near future, be apart of the England Senior Academy and progress into the first team.”
Leah’s dad Nick is delighted with the news.
He added: “Leah’s rapid rise in the game has been a privilege to witness, we are delighted that she has been given this opportunity to hopefully compete at the highest level.
“It’s so close but we know there is a lot of hard work and commitment ahead for her to continue progressing.”
