U 11    

Gwent Girls

Youth Cricket in Gwent is completely ‘open’ throughout with girls able to play in all competitions.  The game is as much a girls’ game as it a boys’ with the only difference being in the ‘strength’ activities such as fast bowling and six-hitting which manifests itself as they move into adulthood.  To reflect this, girls can play ‘one year down’ at Under 11 and Under 13 and ‘two years down’ at Under 15.

For the first time, in 2008, a team of girls was entered in the The Monmouthshire Building Society Youth Cricket League at Under 11 with the girls still being able to play in the mixed teams of their clubs. In 2010 there were three girls teams in the League: Lisvane, Newport and Gwent Girls (whose girls come from teams across Gwent).  With Lisvane moving their team to the Cardiff & Vale League there now remains one team at U13 and one at U11, both from Newport. 

Girls' Cricket is still at an early stage of development but fifteen Gwent players currently represent Wales while four are in the Wales Emerging Excellence Programme.  In 2012 there are Gwent Girls U13 and U15 squads which plays against other Welsh regions in the Welsh National League.  Details of the squads and reports on matches can be found by clicking on the buttons above.
