Nancy Harman


Nancy Holly Harman was born in Worthing, West Sussex on 11th July 1999 and is a right handed batter and right arm leg spin bowler.

Harman made her county debut for Sussex in 2017 against Northamptonshire, and she stayed at the south coast county until 2020 when she moved to Lightning and Leicestershire, before being picked up by the Trent Rockets in the first edition of the Hundred where she played three times.

In 2018, Harman took five wickets at an average of 21.60 as Sussex finished second in Division One of the women's T20 Cup, before she was the county's leading wicket taker in the County Championship the following year, as she claimed 14 scalps at 13.42, including a best of 6-40 against Warwickshire.

Harman made her Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy debut for Lightning in 2020 where she played in all six matches, taking two wickets and scoring 43 runs.

In 2021 in her first season for the Foxes, Harman was the county's leading run scorer in the T20 Cup with 124 runs, and took seven wickets at 13.42. She also took career-best T20 bowling figures of 4-10 against east Midlands rivals Nottinghamshire.

On returning to Sussex and joining the Southern Vipers, Harman played four of the Vipers' seven matches in the Charlotte Edwards Cup, and picked up her maiden Vipers wicket against Northern Diamonds on 21st May 2022.

She ended her debut season with the Vipers have taken four wickets, and scored 44 runs.

In April 2023, Harman was awarded a professional contract for the first time with the Vipers, and was handed a year-long extension at the end of the season.

She picked up two wickets, both in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy, but lit up Headingley with a cameo of 32* off just 19 balls, smashing a six off the final ball of the innings, as the Vipers posted 144 in what was a 16-run win against Northern Diamonds.

Against Thunder at Wormsley in 2024, Harman’s 26* in a 41-run partnership with Alice Monaghan helped the Vipers to a nervy three wicket win.
