Leinster all-rounder Sophie MacMahon is the latest Irish international to set off to Australia for the winter.

The 21 year-old enjoyed a fantastic season with Leinster, helping the Rathmines side secure the league title, as they pipped fierce rivals Merrion.

MacMahon made her ODI for Ireland in 2017, playing against India and South Africa, while she also featured three times earlier this year against Zimbabwe.

She hasn't been included in the training squad for the T20 World Cup next month, so in an effort to continue to develop and improve, has organised a stint at Gordon CC in  New South Wales.

"I got in touch with Gordon myself during the summer to see if I could come over," said MacMahon. 

"Laura Delany and Shauna Kavanagh played there two years ago and really enjoyed their time and obviously we had Bella Fitzgibbon playing for Leinster this season so I had that connection.

"Iím really looking forward to the challenge of playing in such different conditions and against high quality opposition.

"Hopefully it will help me improve my game as much as possible. We have our first game on Sunday so really excited to get going."
