SOMERSET cricketer Sophie Luff scooped two prizes at Western Storm's end of season awards for 2020.

Luff was appointed Storm captain for the first time this year, and she led her side to an impressive second place finish in the South Group of the inaugural Rachael Heyhoe-Flint Trophy - just missing out on a place in the final.

The 27-year-old from Lympsham played in all six group stage matches, and scored 339 runs at an average of 67.80, with a best of 104 not out.

She was rewarded for her superb performances with the Batter of the Year and Players' Player of the Year awards.

Head coach Mark O'Leary said of Luff: "“She’s had a fantastic year. She is exemplary both on and off the field.

"She’s the ultimate pro. She wants to succeed, she works so hard at everything she does, and she’s reaped the rewards of that this season.

“Whenever you award someone the captaincy there is always a little worry that it might affect their game, but Sophie’s just thrived on it.

"She’s such a great person to have around the team.

"She’s a warrior who wants to succeed and wants her teammates to do well.”

Storm's other awards went to Fi Morris (Bowler of the Year), Georgia Hennessy (Performance of the Year, for her 105 against Sunrisers) and Alex Griffiths (Supporters’ Player of the Year).
