Steel City spinner who is Yorkshire royalty
Katie Levick is Yorkshire through and through and a champion through and through after adding regional success with the Northern Diamonds to county success with Yorkshire. In the 2022 Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy final, for the Diamonds against the Southern Vipers at Lord’s, the leg-spinner bowled the last over and successfully defended a target of 13.
Levick took up the offer of a full-time professional contract with the Diamonds ahead of 2022, giving up her day job as a marketing manager with the Headingley based ProCoach Cricket Academy.
She is the all-time leading wicket-taker in the history of county cricket with 189 scalps across women’s List A and T20 matches, and she helped Yorkshire win the Championship title in 2015, picking up her winner’s medal from Prince Philip at Buckingham Palace.
She first wore the white rose at Under 15s level in 2005 and played senior county cricket three years later. She has since returned hauls of 6-25 and 6-28 in one-day Roses matches.
Sheffield-born Levick, 31, is a leggie with England Academy experience under her belt and has played in all four of the Northern Diamonds’ regional finals.
In 2022, she was the leading wicket-taker across both regional competitions, claiming 27 wickets (15 in the Charlotte Edwards Cup and 12 in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy).
Her haul of 15 T20 wickets included her regional best haul of 5-15 in an early season clash with the Vipers.
