Congratulations to the girls who took part in the South Wales finals day of the Lady Taverners Under 13 Tournament held at the Llandarcy Academy of Sport. This is a UK wide tournament with the final being held at Lords Cricket Ground. The Lady Taverners indoor schools and outdoor clubs’ girls’ cricket competitions provide opportunities for girls to get into cricket. Almost half of the current England women’s squad have developed through similar competitions, including Heather Knight, Anya Shrubsole and Sarah Taylor. We hope to see some of our budding female crickets achieving similar recognition in the future.
