Western Australian-born pace bowler Piepa Cleary has committed to the Perth Scorchers, remaining at the club until the end of the 2024-25 Weber Women’s Big Bash League season.

Cleary identified friendships and team culture as the two significant reasons for remaining close to home.

“I have spent my entire life here…signing on was a really easy decision,” Cleary said.

“It’s a family-oriented club, there is a close connection between players and staff.”

Known for her consistency and high standards, Cleary was excited to continue to build a family and a strong connection with everyone who was part of the club.

“We are building something special, which I am excited to be part of,” she said.

Being one of the Scorcher’s most experienced players, bringing her versatility and her bowling prowess at any stage of the innings are parts of the game Cleary wants to bring every game.

“I think working on what I can offer with the ball and being agile will continue to be a big focus of mine,” the WBBL winner said.

With this extension, Cleary eagerly expressed her optimism to use her leadership ability in building up the young players for the Perth Scorchers organisation.

“I have really enjoyed watching our younger players develop over the last couple of seasons…I hope that I can play a role in making them better players for the future,” Cleary stated.
