Western Storm wicket keeper Rachel Priest and teammate Sophie Luff spent the day working with Taunton School girls, aged 9 to 16, in a series of training sessions. 

They brought with them their impressive Kia Super League Trophy, which all pupils got a chance to see up close.

The Kia Super League (KSL) Finals Day was aired live on Sky Sports on 1st September and watched by millions. Western Storm triumphed in a tense and exciting atmosphere.

Sophie Luff, who is from Somerset and batted in the final, said: “It’s so fantastic to see girls having the opportunity to play cricket and train at their school. To have a direct link with Taunton School as sponsors of Western Storm has been great and we are delighted to be working with young players and hopefully inspiring them to aim high.”

Taunton School are sponsors of Western Storm, in a partnership designed to inspire girls as women’s cricket grows in popularity.
