To celebrate International Women’s Day, we are pleased to unveil the latest addition at the Bristol County Ground, home of Western Storm and Gloucestershire Cricket.
We teamed up with local Bristol street artist Silent Hobo to bring to life Western Storm cricketers on the walls of one of their home grounds.
England Captain, Heather Knight is now featured on the walkway towards the Bristol Pavilion. The former Gloucestershire Women player, who is already on the ‘Legends Walkway’ for her accomplishments with Western Storm and England, is joined by other Storm players on the opposite wall by the Nevil Road entrance.
The latest street art added to the ground will give Western Storm players and supporters a sense of home at the Bristol County Ground where the team played all of their Rachael Heyhoe-Flint Trophy matches in 2020.
England Captain and Western Storm player Heather Knight said: “It is great to see Gloucestershire Cricket welcoming Western Storm in Bristol; we all feel part of the Club and its history. The additions of the Western Storm team look very cool and we can’t wait to play in front of our supporters at the County Ground”.
Western Storm will be playing three home 50 over fixtures at Bristol this season.
Regional Director of Women’s Cricket Lisa Pagett said: “It is fantastic to see the inclusion of Heather and the Western Storm team as part of the street art at the Bristol County Ground. Everyone at Gloucestershire Cricket has been welcoming and supportive of the Western Storm team and this is an extension of that.
Every Storm fan that will now visit the ground will see their heroes on the wall and hopefully this is something that female stars of the future can aspire to be a part of.”
