Hannah's mother, Georgina Jackson, was very pleased for her daughter. "You should have seen the smile on her face, she was just so proud of herself, she just lives and breathes cricket" said Georgina. Hannah's cricket ability has been influenced by several people including her father, Jarrad Mann, and coaches Darren Stevenson and Bruce Emery, but says her brother Jacksyn and his friends also give her many tips while playing backyard cricket at their home in Maydena.
Cricket Tasmania's female development officer, Linsey Da Costa, has high phrase for Hannah. "She is a very talented player who has fitted in very well with the other girls in the team," said Linsey. Mann's selection comes at no surprise when you take a look at he statistics while playing with the Gretna Under 13s this season. Four innings with the bat for 82 runs; twice not out; and her highest score being 27. Bowling: six wickets for 39 runs with best figures of 2 for 6 off two overs.
Congratulations Hannah, Gretna Cricket Club wishes you all the best.
