Western District – UC all-rounder Zoe Cooke has signed a one-year contract with the Abode Hotels ACT Meteors after another successful season playing in the McDonalds ACT Women’s Premier Cricket competition.

Cooke’s signing was fittingly announced to her current teammates and club officials at the Western District-UC Presentation Night on Saturday evening before being made public – with Cooke receiving a standing ovation.


 
22-year old Cooke won her fourth straight SJ Moore Medal for Women’s Premier Player of the Year at the Cricket ACT Awards Night in March, and Abode Hotels ACT Meteors Coach James Allsopp is confident she will continue to perform well at the higher level.

“Zoe has dominated female cricket within the ACT over the last two seasons and has been fittingly rewarded with an Abode Hotels ACT Meteors contract,” said James Allsopp

“She represented the Meteors a number of years ago when she was much younger and comes back into the squad with far more desire, maturity and understanding of her own game which will ensure she gives herself every chance of succeeding at a national level.

“We are very excited about the value she will add to the squad and we will watch with great interest to see how hard she is willing to push herself during the pre-season.”

Cooke previously held an ACT Meteors Rookie Contract as a 17-year old and was also selected in the 2013-14 Australian Under-18’s talent squad.
