LCB supports the development of cricket in areas such as women & girls, disabilities, MEC and schools. CDMs and their staff assist delivery of programmes in these areas.
Women & Girls Cricket
The Lancashire Cricket Board (LCB) work closely with the Lancashire Girls’ District Cricket Partnership (LGDCP) – Junior Girls Cricket and Lancashire Women’s Cricket Association (LWCA)-Senior Women’s Cricket for the development of women and girls cricket within the County. Its aim is to give all women and girls the opportunity to play cricket and provide a clear pathway to enable them to represent ultimately the County.
