Beth Morgan brings up the hundred for Middlesex

over 8 years ago | Uncategorised

On Sunday afternoon, at Reed School in Cobham, Middlesex County Cricket Club Women’s Player/Coach, Beth Morgan, achieved a milestone that no other woman in the history of the club has yet to achieve; she played in her one hundredth limited overs match for the club.

This incredible milestone came when Middlesex went head to head with London rivals Surrey Women in the Royal London Women’s One Day Cup on Sunday, and Angus Fraser, Middlesex’s Managing Director of Cricket was there to mark Beth’s special achievement.

Morgan’s one day debut for Middlesex came some nineteen years ago, on 27th July 1996, against Sussex Women at Queens College, Cambridge, when aged just fourteen, she took 2 for 14 off 9 overs to help Middlesex secure victory over their South coast opponents. Since then, she has gone on to score 2,422 runs in 99 matches at an average of 33.63 with a highest score of 106. With the ball she has 91 wickets to her name at an average of just 19.86, with best bowling figures of 4 for 13.

Internationally Morgan has achieved far more in the game than any other Middlesex Women’s cricketer, playing in two successful Ashes campaigns with England in 2008 and 2009, winning the ICC World Cup in 2009 and lifting the ICC Women’s T20 Cup in the same year.

Angus Fraser presented Beth with a special Commemorative Cap to mark the milestone before Sunday’s game, and speaking of Beth’s achievement, he commented:

“Everybody at Middlesex CCC is extremely proud of Beth and what she has achieved in the game, and would like to congratulate her on making her 100th limited over appearance for the Club. This is Beth's 19th season playing for the Club, a period of commitment that very few in the men's team can match. She has and continues to be a wonderful role model for every young girl that aspires to play cricket. Middlesex CCC are lucky to have had Beth representing the Club and we thank her for her remarkable contribution.”
