WIRRAL teenager Sophie Morris has been named in Thunder's squad as they prepare to face Northern Diamonds in a must-win game in Blackpool.

Thunder coach Paul Shaw has named a 13-player squad with Kate Cross, Sophie Ecclestone and Emma Lamb all absent due to England duties. 

Laura Jackson, Daisy Mullan and 18-year-old Morris all come into the squad.

Morris, who plays for Upton Cricket Ckub, is a young left-arm spinner who has progressed through the Thunder Academy to be named in a matchday squad for the first time.


She made headlines when she claimed the remarkable figures of 6/0 from 2.2 overs on her Academy debut against Lightning at Sale earlier this season.

Thunder Squad: Ellie Threlkled (c), Olivia Bell, Danni Collins, Naomi Dattani, Deandra Dottin, Mahika Gaur, Liberty Heap, Laura Jackson, Fi Morris, Sophie Morris, Daisy Mullan, Tara Norris, Seren Smale
