Winning start for Sparsholt U13 Girls

Posted by Jim Ley on 15 May 2021

Sparsholt wrote a new chapter in its near 100-year history on Wednesday night when the club played host to its first-ever girls’ cricket fixture at its Locks Lane home.

The club’s newly formed under-13 girls’ team took on Ropley and while the weather did its best not to play ball, the match finished in a win for the home side in their inaugural fixture.

The result, of course, was largely irrelevant. Of far greater significance is the enormous step forward the club has made in introducing a girls’ team to their already thriving youth set-up. Thanks in part to the introduction of the ECB’s All-Stars programme, the number of girls playing regularly for Sparsholt has increased enormously over the past five years.

The team will play alongside Easton, St Cross, Ropley, Petersfield and Hursley Park in a six team league in 2021. The hope is that this ground-breaking first step leads to more girls playing the sport this summer and beyond.

Thanks to Karen Baker for the fantastic photos of the girls in action.
