Berkswell Cricket Club is expanding to form Women’s and Girl’s teams for the 2015 season following the appointment of new Head of Women’s Cricket Sarah Ginn.

 

Berkswell’s Women’s section will play in the Midlands League, the biggest women’s league in the country, with a Premier Division that boasts many current England players. Berkswell will play ther first season in Division 3, with a total of 10 fixtures against teams from across the Midlands.

 

Berkswell’s Head of Women’s Cricket Sarah Ginn explains:

 

“It’s anticipated that our new Berkswell side will be a mix of experienced players, up and coming youngsters, and players new to the game. We are always looking for new members and welcome all standards to our training nights, which get underway on Thursday nights at Westwood School in Coventry from Thursday 5th February.”

 

Winter practice sessions at Westwood School will start at 6:30pm. Competitive fixtures will start at the end of April, along with outdoor net and fielding sessions. Plans are in place to field a further team in the Warwickshire 8-a-side T20 league, on Tuesday nights throughout the summer.

 

A brand new junior girls section, at Under 13 and Under 11 age groups initially, will start training after the Easter holidays, and hope to be involved in the Warwickshire softball festival leagues during the summer. Beginners and experienced players are invited to join.
