BCA’s bid to boost women’s game
IN THE QUEST for the advancement of women’s cricket on the island, the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) has decided to take the sport to the schools.
During a motivational visit by Women’s West Indian cricketers Hayley Mathews and Shaquana Quintyne to the Hindsbury Primary School yesterday, chairman of the BCA’s women’s cricket committee Hartley Reid said a training programme was started a month ago to assist in the development of female cricketers.
He said the programme, being carried out by coach Richard Clarke, began on April 14 with about 60 girls, but has been trimmed to 26 girls.
Reid said it was crucial to unearth a young crop of players to keep the future of women’s cricket bright. (RG)
