Women & Girls
It’s an exciting time for female cricketers as the women's and girls' game continues to evolve fast.
The profile and standard of cricket has improved considerably in Lancashire, but there is more to do in a county as big as ours.
This section of the website is dedicated to providing information on cricket programmes run for Women and Girls. Links to the Lancashire Women Senior County Squad and Junior County Squads, which now sit under the Performance Department, is made available.
Grassroots Cricket for Women's & Girls will also be provided with regular updates with news, initiatives and updates for anything below the county level.
Stepen Titchard (Performance Manager) commented: "The LCB is delighted with the continued hard work of Jenny as the LCB Women & Girls Cricket Development Officer. She is the first and dedicated officer to lead on development of women & girls and is a key role for us as we try to increase the number of women and girls clubs and girls sections. With a high volume of girls being coached cricket in schools through Chance to Shine programmes, there are currently not enough clubs and district teams for them to participate. With the England Women's team doing very well, this is an area we need to further develop. Jenny has been successful in her previous role with the LCB as the Fylde CDC."
Jenny Laycock (Women & Girls Cricket Development Officer) said: "I am the main point of contact for Women and Girls Cricket in the County. This will encompass grassroots through Chance to Shine programme right up to liaison with the Performance Manager on EPP players. One of my main challenges is to get a good stable programme of matches for Senior Women cricketers in the County. This will initially be driven through a mid-week league to get teams up and running. The Chance to Shine programme will help clubs establish junior girls sections through myself coordinating a schools programme."
