England international Sarah Glenn will join Trent Rockets ahead of the inaugural season of The Hundred.
Derbyshire-born Glenn made her England debut in December after enjoying a successful season in the Kia Super League, claiming 11 wickets at an average of 18.72 for Loughborough Lightning.
Trent Rockets will be able to boast an all-international spin attack for the first year of The Hundred with England’s Mady Villiers and Sarah Glenn both announced in their first wave of domestic signings.
Glenn and Villiers – both of whom are part of England’s squad for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, taking place in February – are joined by Scotland international Kathryn Bryce and England’s ICC Women’s World Cup winner Beth Langston.
They join a Rockets squad – coached by Salliann Briggs – which has already announced Nat Sciver, Katherine Brunt, Sophie Molineux and Elyse Villani.
Glenn said: “It’s really nice to be joining Trent Rockets. I grew up in Derby and I’ve played all my cricket there so when we play at Derbyshire it’s going to be particularly exciting.
“I’m pleased that Mady’s part of the squad, we’ve got to know each other well at England level, and it will be a great opportunity to play more alongside the likes of Nat Sciver and Katherine Brunt.”
Trent Rockets will play two fixtures in Derby this August as part of the Women’s competition, and Derbyshire 2020 Members will be able to get 50% off the early bird prices on tickets for The Hundred fixtures at The Pattonair County Ground, The Fischer County Ground and Trent Bridge, in both the men’s and women’s competitions.
