The club is delighted to announce that women’s cricket is returning to the club later this summer with the long term aim of establishing a full women’s cricket section.

The club had a thriving women’s cricket section back in the 1970′s with regular fixtures and in more recent times players such as Sue Fawcett and  Jenny and Kate Cross have played for Lancashire.

The club also currently has three girls in the Lancashire age group system in Emily Carter, Abi Henson and Olivia Thomas-Corns.

The club has entered a team in a women’s festival at Timperley Cricket Club on 20th September and this will be a six-a-side competition for players over the age of 15. It is aimed at both recreational players and those that are completely new to the game and we will be looking for anyone interested in giving cricket a go to join the team for the event.

Some kit will be provided and it will be a soft ball tournament. The day is intended to be a chance to participate and there will be some coaching on offer as well as a chance to play some games.

Subject to her commitments Kate has agreed to be team manager for the day and we will have a training session prior to the day to give everyone chance to practice.

It is the longer term aim of the club to gain enough interest to start up a women and girls team and we will be in discussions with LCB about this over the winter months. As people will know the club are planning to build a new changing facility over the winter to match this long term ambition and to provide quality facilities for the girls.

Anyone keen to play in the event at Timperley please let Bobby know and we will look forward to the day!

More runs at the top of the order for Mikey GroganHEYWOOD’S second team suffered the inevitable backlash of an extraordinary raft of unavailabilites and injuries at the weekend.

And that the Click here for more ….
