Women prepared for life at the top
MORE than 20 players from England Women’s Pathway squads have been selected on ECB programmes designed to support the players in taking the next steps towards international cricket.
The England Women’s Senior Academy (EWSA) will see 14 players attending a series of camps over the winter and playing a number of competitive matches in the summer to enhance their development and help them become more effective performers. The England Women’s Academy (EWA) will also be doing the same.
The EWSA is in place to enhance the skills of players to ensure they are equipped to perform for England on the international stage. This group of players will be exposed to high quality coaching and will experience domestic and international environments aimed at helping their game move forward.
The group has been trimmed from 18 last year to 14 this time round, with three players progressing to the EWSA having been a part of the EWA last year and nine changes in personnel overall.
Women’s high performance manager Jonathan Finch said: “We are excited by the players and the coaching team we have working with this group and following on from their initial camp in Spain the younger players will be working towards a tri-series with Australia and South Africa next year.”
