Sydney Thunder has signed 18-year old wicket-keeper Hannah Trethewy for WBBL|03.
The teenage keeper who plays for Campbelltown-Camden Ghosts in NSW Women’s Premier Cricket made the first of her two state appearances for the NSW Breakers in November.
“I was pretty excited to tell my friends I’d been offered a Sydney Thunder contract,” said Trethewy.
“I’ve always been a massive fan of Sydney Thunder and it's fantastic that I can put on the green this season.”
The Elderslie High School student will sit her final HSC exam five weeks before Sydney Thunder’s first game of the Rebel Women’s Big Bash League against the Melbourne Renegades on 9 December.
“Even if I don’t get on the park this season, I’m really looking forward to the experience,” said Trethewy.
“To learn off such incredible players and to be around such an elite team and environment, I’m mainly looking forward to the experience and have some fun as well.
“I’m so excited to see how WBBL03 goes but also women’s cricket in general.”
Sydney Thunder General Manager Lee Germon, who played 12 Tests for New Zealand as a wicket-keeper is looking forward to seeing Trethewy continue to develop as a player.
“Hannah is a very talented, young wicket-keeper who is also part of the NSW Breakers squad,” said Sydney Thunder General Manager Lee Germon.
“It is very exciting to provide the opportunity for young, home grown Thunder Nation talent like Hannah to mix and learn whilst being part of a Thunder team that will contain some of the best players in the world.
“Hannah has a lot of potential in a very demanding position and I know she will make the most of this opportunity.”
Sydney Thunder open their Rebel Women’s Big Bash League campaign against the Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Sixers on 9 and 10 December at North Sydney Oval.
