Just a short note to introduce myself in my new capacity as Women’s & Girls Development Officer for Cricket Leinster.
I am delighted to be starting this new role and will be working tirelessly over the summer months and beyond to support clubs in their desire to grow and develop their female cricket programmes.
Our strategic objective is to achieve material growth in the number of participating clubs and teams over the next three years – in that regard, I will be helping our established clubs to foster and sustain their female cricket programmes whilst I will also be encouraging all other clubs to embrace the opportunity to develop a Women’s & Girls programme as part of their broader club strategy.
As we know only too well, only 1 in 4 clubs across the province has a Women’s section and with your help, support and commitment, I expect this to change dramatically over the next three years.
In my new role, I will also be examining competition formats to determine how best to attract and retain our players as they progress through the teenage years and into adulthood in particular.
I will be in touch with everyone over the next short period however if you would like to contact me on something specific about your club, school or Women’s & Girls Cricket in general, please contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
