Women's and Girl's 2020 Round-Up

In a very short season, the girls eventually got some cricket after all their hard work in the winter.

The u13s staged a single day of two T20s against Northamptonshire as sadly the rain beat us in the final game.

The u15s played fixtures against Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire.

The u17s arranged fixtures against Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Loughborough Greenfields.

Congratulations to Kaushicaa Vaseeharan has recently been added to the Emerging Player Programme after impressing in training and fixtures.

The Women’s team, featuring several u17s, also took to the field in back-to-back T20s against a Nottinghamshire side featuring Sonia Odedra and Jodie Cook. Sadly, the rain abandoned the second match but there was lots learnt and taken away from the day.

We have nominated four players from our Emerging Player Programme to be observed by the Lightning Academy. They are Isabelle Hudson, Aimee Colquhoun, Lucy Weston and Sophie Bennett. They have been attending regular online meetings about their personal development plans, nutrition and tactical awareness.

 

Looking ahead to 2021

We have been busy planning for 2021 preparations. Details of the nomination process have been sent to the club network and closes on Monday 4th January.
