Women's and Girls' cricket is growing and showing great promise in Herefordshire. This is due to the opportunities which Hereford Cricket has been able to promote through chance to shine in primary and secondary schools which has then created strong links between clubs and county age group teams.
Our County age group teams are developing and we have squads at U11s,U13s and U15s all of whom will take part in winter training beginning in November at Whitecross High School and play a number of friendly fixtures next season.
Herefordshire cricket over the last couple of years have had former England cricketer, Ashley Giles, England Women Captain Charlotte Edwards and England Player Danni Hazelle attended Girls County Age Group sessions where they worked with the girls and inspired them to achieve their best. Having players who have represented England and who were positive role models in cricket, gave girls the opportunity to learn from professionals.
In 2021 Herefordshire Cricket invited Central Sparks players to a county girls training session, and local girl Emily Arlott attended, along with Gwen Davies. The girls gained valuable advice from the Central Sparks/Birmingham Phoenix players.
Anna Robertson Herefordshire Crickets County Girls Manager has been recognised for her outstanding contribution to cricket development in schools and in Herefordshire.
