Winter training squads confirmed

The England Women’s Development Programme Under-19 and Under-15 winter training squads have been announced.

Players were nominated by their counties through the talent identification process and subsequent strong performances at domestic level during the summer.

Cassie Coombes of Somerset has been selected for the England Women’s Development Programme Under-15s Both squads will be predominantly based at the National Cricket Performance Centre, undertaking player-specific programmes delivered by high quality coaches and sport science and medicine specialists.

The programmes will each start with an induction and physical screening which will underpin the strength and conditioning delivery throughout the winter.

Each programme will comprise five three-day camps during the winter with Jonathan Finch in charge of the the under-19s and the Salliann Briggs the under-15s.

"This winter will be the busiest and most focused winter across the England Women's Cricket Pathway," said Clare Connor, Head of Women's Cricket.

"The inaugural England Women's Under-19 tour departs for South Africa on Monday and from November, the England Women's Academy and the England Women's Development Programmes at both under-19 and under-15 will be in full swing with a series of training camps at the National Cricket Performance Centre.

"With the England Women's squad in West Indies and then gearing up for a return Ashes series in Australia in the New Year, there could not be a more exciting time for women's cricket and for young players who aspire to reach the highest level."
