Women & Girls

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

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."

If you need to contact Jenny, she is available on: Tel: 0161 868 6852 / 07713 287989; E-Mail:

My daughter would love to play cricket. We know Karen her daughter is Frankie, she plays for you, we don't know how to enrol. I have come from a family history of cricket, my dad was a team captain down in Somerset, I used to help mum do the teas and also keep the book! From a young age! My daughter is in a football team and has been since she was 6. She attends the Liverpol blue coat school
Kind regards
