Ladies

We are looking forward going into our second season. Ladies and girls cricket is still growing at BCC and this year we have four teams going into the league with the start of a new softball league. The fixtures for the games are listed below and available on the club website.

The home game against St Annes CC, normally during early August, is our annual charity game in memory of Gordon Chubb. All proceeds from this day go to the Motor Neuron Disease Charity. For more information about Ladies Cricket contact Jane Boyne, Ladies Cricket Manager via Contact Us

We have a successful Junior Setup.

Junior Practices run twice a week, on Mondays from 6pm and Fridays from 6pm.
