Satterthwaite named Gades WBBL Player of the Season

29 March 2018

Amy Satterthwaite has capped a stellar first season with the Melbourne Renegades by taking out the club’s WBBL Player of the Season award.

The New Zealand international was lauded for her leadership throughout a season that saw the Renegades narrowly miss out on a finals spot.

The award is another honour for the Renegades skipper to add to her collection following an excellent WBBL|03 campaign.

“Amy has been an outstanding recruit on all fronts, her leadership is very good,” Renegades WBBL Coach Tim Coyle said when reflecting on Satterthwaite’s season.

“She has a calm head, good cricket brain and obviously went out and executed her skills with the bat very well and obviously contributed with the ball.”

Satterthwaite was named the competition’s player of the season last month.

Under a 3-2-1 voting system awarded by umpires after every game, the New Zealand international finished with 35 votes, seven clear of the second placed Elyse Villani.

This latest honour was voted on by the Renegades members.

Satterthwaite was the Renegades leading run scorer, posting 368 runs at an average of 33.45.

She notched two half centuries and also took 11 wickets at a strike rate of 19.
