Tilly Corteen-Coleman has joined South East Stars’ senior squad ahead of the 2024 season, signing a Pay As You Play (PAYP) contract with the regional team.

The 16-year-old, who was recently selected by Southern Brave for the 2024 season of The Hundred, is currently on the tour to Sri Lanka with the England u-19 squad. In the T20 segment of the tri-series, Corteen-Coleman has put on an impressive show, claiming four wickets in three outings, including a match-winning performance of 3/15 against Australia.

During the summer, if the left-spinner gets a chance to play in one of Brave’s first two matches, she will become the youngest player to feature in The Hundred, a record currently held by her teammate Alice Capsey.

Last season, Corteen-Coleman was amongst the wickets for the Stars Academy across competitions, finishing as the side’s second-highest wicket-taker in the Regional Academy Friendlies with 12 scalps at a striking average of 17.25. 2023 also saw her win the Stars Academy Value Player award.

With the addition of Corteen-Coleman, as well as South Africa international Tazmin Brits, which was announced earlier this year, the Stars senior squad will have a roster of 21 players heading into the new season.

Emma Calvert, Regional Director of Women’s Cricket, said: “Tilly is one of the brightest prospects in English cricket right now. She has put in the hard yards and earned her contract at such a young age through her brilliant performances on the playing field and in training.

“I am delighted to see her put on the England u-19 jersey, do well in Sri Lanka, as well as get selected in The Hundred. We aim to provide her the best environment possible to make the step up this season, and I look forward to seeing her push for her chance in the senior XI.”
