Wanted! – female cricket recruits

Fancy some fitness and fun on the historic Jesmond turf?
We’re offering two new options for 2012:
** join our beginner section, for a weekly workout
** join our development squad, for the new Northumberland Women’s Development League started this season.
Training will be on Monday nights from April 23 (6.30 to 8pm), just wear whatever you’ve comfortable in (eg trackie pants, leggings) plus trainers. PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL MEET INDOORS ON MONDAY 23 APRIL IF IT’S RAINING, TO PLAN OUT THE SEASON.

We can also offer other practice options for people keen to play in competitive matches.
If you’d like to get involved, please contact Cathy Hare by email or text her on 07971367421.

This follows a trial run last year when for the first time a number of women did some cricket training at Newcastle Cricket Club. Building on their interest, and encouraged by their enthusiasm, the club has decided to take the next step. More details here.

Women’s cricket is a growing sport in our area and the Club wants to be able to give women more opportunities to get involved in the game. Please spread the word!
