Adelaide Strikers have retained the services of Bridget Patterson for the long term, signing a three-year deal, the club announced on Monday (September 7). The right-handed batter has been associated with the Strikers since WBBL01 and is their third-highest run-scorer in the tournament with 1,117 runs in 71 matches.

“I love being at the Strikers, which is my hometown team so to speak, and we have continued to build something really special here since it all started,” said the South Australian star. Though the 26-year-old was a part of the Australian development squad which toured Sri Lanka in 2016, Patterson is yet to make her international debut.


A three-year signing clearly shows the confidence that Adelaide Strikers have in Patterson, and it is an indication of her being a part of their future plans. “I’ve made a lot of memories here, and I’m really looking forward to that continuing for the next three years,” Patterson said.

In WBBL05, she made 319 runs at a strike rate of 117.71 and played an important role in their road to the final.

The squad so far: Suzie Bates (c), Megan Schutt, Tahlia McGrath, Laura Wolvaardt, Darcie Brown, Sarah Coyte, Ellie Falconer, Tegan McPharlin, Annie O’Neil, Bridget Patterson, Alex Price and Amanda-Jade Wellington.
