Northern Superchargers – a New Captain for The Next Campaign

Harry Brook, one of England’s most prolific talents, has been named as the Men’s Team Captain ahead of The Northern Superchargers’ next campaign in The Hundred.

International batsman Harry Brook will lead the Headingley-based side in the fourth edition of The Hundred, starting later this month.

Brook, a popular figure amongst the Northern Superchargers’ fan base, has been with the team for the past three years. Last season, Brook delivered an incredible individual performance against Welsh Fire at Headingley, scoring a record-breaking 105 from 42 balls. This incredible innings, which included two sixes and four fours, was the fastest century in The Hundred’s history. He also made a remarkable catch to dismiss Jonny Bairstow, further cementing his adoration with the Headingley crowd.

Head coach Freddie Flintoff, in his debut season with the Superchargers, has placed his trust in Brook, recognising his leadership qualities both on and off the field.

A Yorkshire native, Brook shares a special connection with Headingley. The local community, known for its unwavering support, will undoubtedly rally behind one of their own as he steps into this leadership role. The atmosphere at Headingley was electric throughout the 2023 campaign, enhanced by pyrotechnic and musical performances that created a unique and vibrant experience.

Harry Brook:  “It’s an honour to captain Northern Superchargers, and I’m really excited for it. It’s always special to play at Headingley and to represent the area, and to do that as captain in The Hundred this year will be extra special. I really like the look of the squad we’ve formed, and I think there’s a lot to be excited about. I can’t wait to work with Freddie and the rest of the group and hopefully it’ll be a year to remember.”

Hollie Armitage will also once again lead the Northern Superchargers Women’s Team, providing experienced leadership as they head into the new season. The women were finalists last year, so they’ll be seeking to build on last year’s run to the final and hopefully take home the trophy this time around.

The Northern Superchargers will kick off their home games at Headingley on Friday 26th July against the Trent Rockets. Tickets are available at £5 for juniors aged 3-15 (free for under 3s) and start from £20 for adults.
