CRICKET: A well-attended meeting to discuss the way forward for the development of ladies' cricket in Suffolk was held at the Butterfly Hotel in Bury St Edmunds.
A well-attended meeting to discuss the way forward for the development of ladies' cricket in Suffolk was held at the Butterfly Hotel in Bury St Edmunds.
Currently only three clubs play regular ladies' cricket in the county.
Jenny Day, the ECB regional ladies' cricket development officer, outlined the ECB funded programme of 12-week coaching courses for girls planned for all regions of Suffolk during the early months of 2003.
It was agreed that Suffolk ladies, and also girls, six-a-side tournaments should be organised next June by the Federation of Suffolk Cricket Leagues (FSCL) committee with the objective of encouraging beginners to take part.
A list of clubs who are interested in organising friendly matches will be collated and a further meeting to discuss the progress on these initiatives is planned for March next year.
