Girls’ cricket has really taken off in recent years. Fuelled by the success of the England women’s team, the popularity of the sport for girls has gathered great momentum.
Totton & Eling Cricket Club has always encouraged girls to train and play within their open (mixed) teams. In 2018 we set up our first dedicated Under 13 girls’ team.
Not only did our girls thoroughly enjoy the season, they had great success in winning through to the Lady Taverners T20 Under 13 2018 Regional Final which was played in Newport, Wales. Richard Dibden, coach of the team, was delighted with the first season for the team, commenting “The spirit and camaraderie of the girl’s team was there for all to see and they really developed as a team and individual players over the course of the season”.
The 2019 season saw Totton & Eling entering a team in the Winchester Warriors Under 16 Girls League In addition they competed in the Hampshire Cup and Lady Taverners T20. In 2020 we will again be entering a team in this league
Totton & Eling are continually looking to expand and develop girls cricket.
With the success of the ‘All Stars’ cricket (aimed at both boys and girls aged 5 to 8) and the launch of our very own W10 Ladies team, Totton & Eling can cater for any age wishing to play girls cricket.
Totton & Eling are looking to build upon the success of our girls section and wish to attract more players to set up additional teams.
