Women’s Cheshire and Lancashire Selection

The Women have had a bumper crop of selections for both Lancashire and Cheshire this season with a total of 8 players selected!

Lancashire are away to Leicestershire on Sunday and Cheshire have a week off.

Lancashire: Aimee Wallace, Zena Francis, Hannah Birch, Freya Wildgoose and Sarah Cornforth.

Cheshire Cup

It’s Cheshire Cup time and after winning it against Chester last year, we find ourselves competing against Wirral this Saturday away at Wirral (KO 3pm)

This semi-final comes after Wirral held out National 2 North team Caldy in a tense match which saw Wirral taking on an experienced side and winning. They have a match report here. Given their victory over Caldy, we cannot be complacent going into this game and the players will be looking to put their names forward for the first game of the season the following week.

Normally this game would take place during the season, but with such hectic schedules we are both playing this as a pre-season game.
