Seven Female New South Wales Country Academy squads have been announced highlighting both the growth of Female Cricket in NSW and the Country Pathway system.

The Country Academy squads, each representing different regions, include players from the under 13 to 18 age group.

The squads will begin training in the first week of the July school holidays with a two-day session at the new women’s cricket facility at Penshurst Park in Sydney’s South.

Like the Metro Academy squads for the same age groups, Cricket NSW Female Talent Manager Steve Jenkin said numbers for the Country squads had grown significantly in the last 12 months.

“Each of the Country Academy squads increased by about 10 to 15 players and that was after about 400 nominations throughout the rural and regional areas,” said Jenkin.

“With the Under 13 State Challenge being in place now, the academies take on a greater importance and I think that will work well.

“The academies are vital to developing a pool of players for the future selection of Under 15 and 18 squads at national championship level.

“Without that depth, performance at higher levels suffers.”
