GIRLS JUNIOR CRICKET 2018
The NE Wales Junior Girls Cricket 'Hub' created in 2014, has been a resounding success! The ECB and Cricket Wales Board had identified the need for girl’s cricket to be progressed across Wales and our 'Hub' initiative has taken this forward significantly across NE Wales.
Starting with a handful of girls, we have progressed to the stage where we now have 25+ girls coming to our coaching sessions and this has grown significantly over the last two years. The ‘Hub’ continues to be run in the name of North East Wales Junior Cricket with organised coaching and games taking place at various clubs across the region who have kindly offered the use of their facilities. Club & Regional coaches continue to be involved, providing a high level of coaching expertise to the girls involved, who train and compete in a girls only environment.
After coaching within the 'Hub,' girls have the choice of either progressing back to clubs, where they would play with boys in mixed teams or moving on through the girls/ladies structure to join a ladies team. For those girls who wish to remain in the girls/ladies set up, we will facilitate this for them.
For the last 4 years, North East Wales Girls have entered teams into the Cheshire Girls Junior League at U13 and U15 level with great success and we will be doing this agin in 2018.
We are currently indoors for our Winter training programme. We look to welcome any new girls to those Hub sessions.
We are always looking for new players so come along and join us!
The NE Wales Girls 'Hub' has recently been awarded National Development Centre (NDC) status, which is a tremendous recognition of the role it plays in developing girls cricket.
