Worcestershire Women’s Rapids spinner, Sarah Glenn, has been awarded her second England Women central contract for 2022-2023.

Glenn is one of 18 players to receive a central contract from the England And Wales Cricket Board.

The 23-year-old made her international debut in December 2019 and has played in 37 WT20Is and nine WODIs.

Glenn helped the Rapids to win the ECB Women’s Country T20 Group Two competition last summer.

She is also a member of the Central Sparks squad which competes in the Charlotte Edwards Cup and Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy.

Glenn’s first central contract ran from May 1, 2021 to October 31, 2022.

The new contracts are the first cycle in which they have run from November 1 in order to align with the professional contracts in the women’s regional game.

Increased investment in the women’s regional game means that from February 1, 2023 there will be at least 98 professional women’s cricketers in England and Wales, 18 centrally contracted England Women’s player and 80 ECB-funded professional players in the regional game.

Director of England Women’s Cricket Jonathan Finch said: “Introducing six new names on to the list of contracted players is exciting and provides a new look and feel to the group.

“We have a really exciting 12 months of cricket ahead and we feel this group of players will form the foundations of our side that will take us through various bilateral series, the Women’s Ashes and the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.”
