Kathryn White, coach for the U17s, said: “We are looking forward to the opportunity to compete this week against Nottinghamshire and Shropshire, who are both opponents that we are yet to play against as U17s.
The team played well against Durham last week at Gala CC and won one of the three matches with good performances from several players including some eye catching displays behind the stumps from Ailsa Lister.
We have been able to reflect positively on the performances and now look to build upon the experience.
The young team will need to work hard with four senior players being selected for the Women’s Performance Academy trip to Ireland this week, which provides the opportunity for four fresh faces to join the team.
This just goes to show the growing depth of the women’s game in Scotland.”
