"To all Heat fans, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the love and support over the past three seasons. I was, and still am, honoured to be the Brisbane Heat’s foundation signing. It was this time four years ago we were eagerly awaiting WBBL01, excited but unsure of what we were about to be part of. Little did we know how it would change the landscape of sport in Australia, particularly at such a critical time for women, and women in sport. I am proud of how the WBBL has grown the game, particularly in my home state of Queensland. We have achieved so much in three short seasons, especially in the rural areas, playing in front of over 8000 people in Mackay.
The highlight of ever game is always seeing the young girls and boys in the crowd, who I have no doubt will be the ones hitting the boundaries and taking the wickets in a few years time. I feel so privileged to have been involved with the Brisbane Heat WBBL side since the very start, and I am so grateful for every opportunity I have had to take the field in the teal and to meet you all.
I promise this isn’t goodbye forever - I’ll still be pulling on the maroon this season for the Queensland Fire!
Thanks again for everything. Your support has meant more than you know.Holly xx"
