Norfolk's Louise Cadge will be at Lord's next Friday after being chosen to represent a combined women's MCC Universities side against Loughborough.

The 18-year-old, who plays for Vauxhall Mallards, is studying sports science at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge and will play for the Best of the Rest side in their annual fixture against the Loughborough side.

The 50-over game, which starts at 11am, will be played on the Nursery Ground at Lord's, while the MCCU men's Challenge final takes place on the main ground.

Cadge said: 'I'm pleased to have the opportunity to go to Lord's and play alongside some other talented cricketers and hopefully win against Loughborough, and to be able to have my mum and dad there to support me as they have done so much for me over the years.'
