All-rounder Kathryn Bryce takes over from Abbi Aitken who previously held the position for 8 years but Abbi will remain an integral part of the team during the 2018 season.
20 year-old Kathryn Bryce is currently studying at Loughborough University but will take charge of the Wildcats at the start of their ECB T20 campaign before leading her troops into the ICC T20 Global Qualifiers in the Netherlands in July.
Opening the batting and bowling for Scotland during last year’s ICC T20 European Qualifier, she is no stranger to pressure situations.
She has been included in the ICC WBBL Associate Rookie Programme, spending time with the Melbourne Stars and Adelaide Strikers, whilst also training with Loughborough Lightning, learning from some of the very best in the women’s game.
On the announcement Bryce said, “It’s a great honour to be asked to captain such an amazing team with some exciting times coming up, starting with the ICC Global Qualifiers this summer.
Our aim this season is to win the ECB T20 ahead of the Qualifiers. I’ve been around the group of girls for a while now and captained the side on a few occasions last year so I’m really looking forward to being able to do it again.”
Bryce’s first game in charge will come against Hampshire on June 10.
