The Northern Cricket Union is delighted to announce their Women's Performance Groups for the 2023 season.
Our expanded women's performance programme has been training at Ulster University pre-Christmas with a further 8-week programme due to start in February ahead of an extensive summer training and fixtures programme.
"I would like to congratulate all the players named in the NCU Senior Woman's winter training squad and I wish them well during the winter months as they all strive to develop their own games and to collectively strengthen us as a union. I'm delighted that 27 players will utilise the performance environment over the winter months.

There are also currently five players overseas/university who will join up with the senior group on their return.

Our head coach, James Cameron-Dow, who was recently appointed as Women and Girls Talent and Development Officer, is continuing his work with Amy Hunter (Instonians), Cara Murray (Waringstown / Saintfield), the Irish underage Northern players and The Dragons squad as they continue to prepare for their upcoming World Cup's in South Africa and the 2023 Super Series.
I think it's a fantastic time to be involved as both a player and a coach with the opportunities around the Super Series and Irish programmes. I am certainly looking forward to the next few years, and working with a great bunch, while having some extremely talented youngsters coming through."
