The Statewide Super SA Scorpions have signed right-arm fast bowler Kate Peterson ahead of the 2021-22 Women’s National Cricket League season.

The 18-year-old, lauded for her swing bowling and ability to execute a deadly yorker, will make the move from New South Wales where she has progressed through their pathways.

Peterson is contracted to Sydney Thunder in the WBBL and she made her debut last year in the Sydney Village immediately following the completion of her high school education.

She expressed her excitement on the move.

“I’m really looking forward to joining the girls in Adelaide and getting stuck into pre-season and working with Luke (Williams) and Jude (Coleman) who are such experienced coaches,” Peterson said.

“When SA expressed interest I jumped at the opportunity, and I’m looking forward to a new scenery to help progress my cricket.”

Head Coach Luke Williams said: “After some improved and encouraging performances and results in the WNCL last season we are pleased to retain consistency in our contracted playing group as we seek to take further steps forward in the 2021-22 season. 

“With Darcie Brown’s elevation to a Cricket Australia contract which we are delighted about, we are equally thrilled that Kate has accepted a contract to join the SA Scorpions.

“We’re certain Kate will be a great acquisition for the SA Scorpions and South Australian cricket and look forward to seeing her continue to develop and prosper in our program.”
