In Memoriam: Bethan Watkinson

It is with great sadness that we have to report that one of our Vipers Champions, Bethan Watkinson, died last Sunday after a battle with cancer.

Bethan was a huge part of the W&G family in Hampshire, having played for Portsmouth CC since she was an U9 and coming up through the RPC and County pathway.

Bethan, a talented bowler and useful bat, was an integral part of the County U11 squad for 2 years and had just been selected for the County U13’s when she fell ill. A part of the Vipers Champions Programme, Bethan produced a fantastic batting video for the RPC girls to keep them busy during lockdown – this was also sent to Rwanda for the Indatwa girls to use.

Much loved by us all, Bethan will always be remembered and her time with us treasured. Our thoughts and prayers go to her family.
