The county’s first ever Under 11 Girls’ league has been launched in the Cotswolds.
Fairford, Bourton Vale, Great Rissington, Charlton Kings, Slaughters United and Cirencester are all entering teams for the softball competition which gets underway on May 16.
The league has been set-up by Fairford’s David Taylor, who has also overseen the national award-winning Chance to Shine schools coaching programme in the area.
He also helped set up at the successful Cotswold Women’s League and the Under 13 Girls competition.
The new league has been welcomed by Gloucestershire Cricket Board (GCB) women and girls development officer Lisa Pagett.
“It is fantastic to see girls’ cricket continue to flourish in the Cotswolds. Thanks to David the Cotswold District Cricket Association (CDCA), and the successful Cotswold Women’s League, the clubs in this area are leading the way for women and girls cricket in Gloucestershire.”
