Scorpions season review
Season 2012/13 provided mixed results for the SA Scorpions who finished sixth in the WNCL competition.
The young Scorpions squad members were handed plenty of opportunities after the retirement of greats Karen Rolton and Shelley Nitschke.
Lauren Ebsary was handed the captains armband, whilst Rhianna Peate took over vice-captain duties.
The team recorded one win in the 50 over format, a convincing performance against Tasmania that saw a number of youngsters step up, including leg spinner, Amanda Wellington, who claimed 4-29 from just six overs.
Former England International and world-class bat, Beth Morgan, proved to be a handy recruit and she continued to lead from the front, providing much-need experience amongst and extremely young group.
Ebsary had yet another extremely consistent season, finishing as the Scorpions leading wicket-taker and run scorer.
Spinner Alex Price showed plenty of promise in her first season as a Scorpion, finishing the season with seven wickets alongside Ebsary. Tahlia McGrath and Vice-captain Rhianna Peate showed promising signs with the bat throughout the season.
Youngsters Alex Price, Amanda Wellington, Bridget Patterson and Samantha Betts made their WNCL Scorpions debuts this year, alongside Kiara Stockley and Beth Morgan.
UK recruit Beth Morgan, right, provided a senior head and some serious batting skills during season 2012/13.
