While Ben Rohrer was carving his career as a professional cricketer, his sister Kristy was continuing the family sporting tradition as a professional soccer player in England with Fulham.

Now inspired by the Women’s Big Bash League, and Ben’s title-winning six for Sydney Thunder in last season's BBL Final, Kristy is embracing the Sixers and Thunder Futurestars program which is attracting elite female athletes from other sports.

A former Australian School Girls and NSW Under 18 soccer player and member of the NSW Institute of sport, Kristy had not picked up a cricket ball since she was 12.

She revived the backyard battles of their formative years with brother Ben at the SCG in preparation for the Futurestars trial on Saturday 3 September. The best two participants will be awarded a Thunder and Sixers rookie training contract.
