First blog of many updating you on the world of Women and Girls Cricket in Lancashire

Hopefully this blog will be the first of many and will keep you up to date with all the goings on in the world of women’s cricket.

It has been and still is a very busy time for the girls county squads so i will just up date you on what happened in the last 3 weeks:

The U17s commenced their programme of matches away at Northamptonshire and failed in the batting department while Bhumika Doshi bowled well they wouldn’t squeeze a win. They followed this up with a win against Cheshire at Church CC. Kate Conway coming away with 3 wickets.

The U15 girls came up against Cumbria at Fulwood and Broughton CC and batted first scoring 184. All round performance from Rosie Graham who took 4 wickets for 8 runs and scored 29* meant Lancashire came out on top bowling Cumbria out for 35. Durham was washed out and another win vs. Northumberland followed in quick succession. 4 wickets from Hannah Knowles was the pick of the bowling. An unfortunate result occurred as Cumbria where the girls lost as they were bowled out for 105. A disappointing end to the season on a loss but some good performances means a lot of these girls have made the step up to U17 and some are pushing for 1st X1 places.

The U13s have got a very busy summer ahead. A big game awaits at Harrogate CC on Friday where they face Roses rivals Yorkshire. Lancashire came out winners in the home fixture but the game was rained affected meaning ruin rate decided the winner. Make sure you are all well rested for the big clash on Friday girls!! The following week sees us travel to Cumbria and then host Northumberland. Let’s finish the group matches without a lost girls!

The Under 11s have had an exciting time already and are still to play a game! The girls had the chance to be the guard of honor at Lancashire’s game vs. Warwickshire under the new floodlights. A snippet from one of the girls will follow.

On a personal note i spent yesterday with Lancashire’s 2nd X1 team at Todmorden CC, shadowing Gary Yates and picking his brains for ideas. I intend to implement some of his intensity, commitment and player led practice into the county age group and senior squads.

Fingers crossed the weather stays dry for our senior training at Orrell Red Triangle CC tonight so we can prepare for our trip to Scotland this weekend.

Back to Chance to Shine paperwork and summer camp planning for me now.
