Have your say

Ten-year-old Ellen Marson has made her county cricket debut, playing for the 
Leicestershire and Rutland’s U13 girls.

She played exceptionally well despite Leicestershire losing to a strong Shropshire side.

Her father, Steve said: “She has been training every Sunday throughout winter at Loughborough.

“She also plays for North Luffenham U11s and occasionally for the U13s - all boys teams.”

He added: “I spent some time with Andrew Flintoff last year riding on the Dallaglio Flintoff Cycle Slam and when Freddie met her, he was very impressed with her batting skills.
