South East Stars’ season is set to be completed over the next few weeks with matches in the T20 Charlotte Edwards Cup & 50 over Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy to come.
Here we take a look at the Surrey Women involved in representing the Surrey & Kent region at the elite level of domestic women’s cricket in England.
South East Stars will play a T20 with Lightning at Guildford on Wednesday and entry is free for all. For all upcoming South East Stars fixtures, click here.
Bryony Smith, 2
The team’s vice-captain, deputy to Kent’s Tash Farrant, is the big hitting batter and off spin bowling Smith. She played for Welsh Fire in The Hundred and has 4 England caps to her name.
Smith has 151 runs & seven wickets in four 50 over matches and 51 runs & eight wickets in three T20 matches.
Sophia Dunkley, 47
Dunkley is unlikely to feature for South East Stars this month, with international commitments aplenty due to England’s white-ball series with New Zealand.
Aylish Cranstone, 28
The third of the three Surrey Women who are professionals in this squad, as well as Smith & Dunkley. Cranstone is a top order left handed batter and livewire in the field. Cranstone played for London Spirit in The Hundred.
She has 100 runs exactly in the regional structure so far this season.
Danielle Gregory, 19
A lethal leg spinner who went viral in 2020 when she sent down her own ‘Ball of the Century’ in the London Cup between Surrey & Middlesex at The Kia Oval.
Gregory has five wickets so far this season for South East Stars but will be full of confidence after winning The Hundred with Oval Invincibles.
Hannah Jones, 8
The Surrey Women captain hasn’t played for South East Stars yet in 2021 but did make 6 List A appearances in 2020. An off spinner who bowls with guile & a lower order bat capable of accumulating quick runs.
Eva Gray, 18
Right arm seamer and lower order bat Gray missed the closing stages of The Hundred through injury and it remains to be seen if she will be fit to play again in 2021.
Kirstie White, 14
Experienced opener White scored 104 runs including a thrilling 73 in the first four matches of this year’s Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy.
Rhianna Southby, 17
Wicket keeper Southby will also be excited right now, having been part of the triumphant Oval Invincibles squad. While her role there was much more off-the-field than on it, her lightning quick hands will be ready to go again this month.
Chloe Brewer, 2
Right arm seamer and increasingly standing out as a batter, Brewer has only played one South East Stars match so far this season but shone last year with 40 & 79 in just two innings at the top of the order.
Alice Capsey, 26
One of the breakout stars of The Hundred, Capsey’s talents as a spinner and attacking batter have long been known to all in the game in Surrey. She has four wickets and 93 runs to her name at this level this season.

Kira Chathli, 20
Wicket keeper batter Chathli was the other big winner from that 2020 London Cup, as well as Gregory, due to her innovative shot making to get Surrey over the line. She’s played four matches for South East Stars so far this season.
