Following the recent good news about Jack Morley and Ethan Harding, Heywood have today learned that Emily Carter has been selected as part of the under-15′s Lancashire Girls squad.
The girls will train throughout February, March and April and will ultimately be divided into a County squad and a Development squad. Both squads play fixtures over the summer and therefore Emily will have the opportunity to play and further her development.
Again this news is credit to the youth coaches at the club and goes to show the strides the club has taken in recent years to improve the youth set up, invest in facilities and coaches and promote the game in the area.
In light of the announcement yesterday that the women’s game is to turn professional there is now a genuine opportunity for girls like Emily to aspire to a career in cricket.
Heywood’s Kate Cross was thrilled to hear the news stating: “It is fantastic to see Emily given the chance to train and play at County level and I hope that this news will encourage other girls to come down to Heywood and give cricket a go.
“I am delighted for Paul and the family who have generously supported the development of junior cricket with sponsorship in recent years”.
