Beachborough Elite Player Cricket Programme

Congratulations to Emily and Holly - selected for the Elite Player Cricket Programme

I am delighted to report that both Emily and Holly have been selected for the Elite Player Cricket Programme for Girls. The programme is designed to give selected girls, who Northamptonshire believe have outstanding potential in the game, the opportunity to receive intensive training. In identifying Emily and Holly, the county feel that the two Beachborough pupils have the potential to be on the England Women’s Development Programme in the future and therefore the programme will give them the best chance of fulfilling this potential. The sessions will take place at the County Ground in Northampton on Thursday afternoons from 1:30pm to 4pm beginning on 12th February. In addition to the coaching that the girls will receive, they will also keep be advised on nutrition and have to do a series of strength and conditioning exercises which the coaches may sometimes require them to complete in their own time. I wish the girls the very best of luck as they start their journey to potentially playing in a World Cup for England in the future  – that would be some achievement! Report by Mark Usher
