Winterburn named Molten WBBL Young Player of the Year again

Holly Winterburn has been crowned Molten WBBL Young Player of the Year for a second time after the member clubs cast their annual vote for the prestigious honour.

The 2017-18 recipient was the runaway winner for the award this time around, sweeping the board in the voting.

Her scorching campaign for Leicester Riders has illustrated why she has committed to playing in the NCAA Stateside for the prestigious University of Oregon #GoDucks.

The guard has racked up a superb 16 points per game to lead Riders in scoring, while also topping her team’s steals chart with 2.2 per outing. He has also added an impressive 5.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists to underline her all-action contribution this season.

Winterburn is tipped as someone who will make a jump to the Great Britain senior team in due course, but her short-term goal is to fire Riders back into the benecos WBBL Play-Off Final at The 02 on Sunday 19 May.
