The U17 girls start their ECB County Championship campaign today with a game against Cumbria at Sedgwick CC. The girls have further fixtures against Lincolnshire and Derbyshire in August, as well as a trip to Ireland in July.
Captain Kathryn Bryce is looking forward to the opener, "It is a very exciting time for the girls as we are all prepared and ready for this game on the back of two incredible T20's last weekend for the first Junior Regional's. Those players that are new this season are keen to come in and make an impression"
Head Coach Ollie Rae commented, "The squad have prepared well for the much anticipated opening fixture. There has been a great deal of hard work put in by the girls and support staff over the winter and pre season. As a coach I am very proud of what we are achieving as a unit and I believe if the team work together to execute their skills, we will return home with a very positive result”.
