Here come the girls!

2017 started off well for the Staffordshire Girls Age groups with the u15 Girls were awarded and presented with the Young Team of the Year by Dame Kelly Holmes at the Sentinel Annual Sports Awards at the start of the year.

This was in recognition of their 2016 success in sharing the ECB National u15 Girls Championship after their final game was a washout against Hampshire. This success continued with both the u15 Girls and u17 Girls both reaching their respective ECB National Finals after winning their age group leagues. Both squads equipped themselves well with the u17s in 3rd place and the u15’s 4th place, credible performances to finish in the top four of the ECB National competition.

As part of the England Womens development programme, The Regional Development Centres is the first step towards a full England call up.  Based on their performances and attendance at the RDC assessment sessions 10 of our Age group players have been selected to attend an RDC.
