FRANCES LAUSEN has been named the top young cricket coach in the county.
The 18-year-old, who plays for Hatherleigh Ladies and is assistant coach of Tarka Girls, won the Sky Sports Devon Young Coach of the Year Award.
Frances, a left-handed batter, first played for Hatherleigh when she was 9 and has represented Devon at junior and senior level.

Frances, who is studying economics at Cardiff University, received her award from Peter Such, the ex-England spinner.
