Cricket for girls

A GIRLS' team is being introduced at Wargrave Cricket Club

A GIRLS' team is being introduced at Wargrave Cricket Club.

The club, which plays at the recreation ground off Recreation Road, is inviting girls aged seven to 18 to join.

The first training session will be held on Friday, April 24 from 5.30pm to 6.30pm and will be followed by regular training sessions and tournaments over the summer.

Bob Austen, chairman of Wargrave Girls' football club, said more than 130 girls now played regularly and he hoped to repeat this success with the cricket club.

He said: "Women's cricket is rapidly gaining popularity in this country and our women's national team is a world-beater, so it's a great time to become involved.

"Wargrave Cricket Club boasts some of the best facilities in the country and experienced coaches led by Neal Robinson, Berkshire head coach. Neal will be visiting local schools over the coming weeks to promote girls' cricket."
