They are: Sahdia Umar & Imaan Zharah [both ex-Riddlesden], Louisa Hutchinson [Steeton] and Lauren Hunter [Oakworth]. Freya Craddock [Earby] is recommended for u-13 county observation. Sandylands trainee Emily Hall has been selected for the North Yorkshire squad. In addition Hema Bhatoa [Oxenhope] was observed for County and has been recommended for training with Lancashire at Old Trafford, as the Yorkshire squad is so strong.

GIRLS' COACHING BEGINS
Girls team manager Neil Bishop reports a terrific turn out of UAJCA girls at the NYWGCA coaching course at Sandylands Centre. Still places if you're hovering!
GIRLS' CRICKET CHANGE OF START DATE
Mark Jobling from NYWGCA reports that due to a mix-up over dates at Sandylands the Girls coaching is now scheduled to start on Sunday 3rd February and NOT Sunday 27th January
GIRLS' CRICKET DEVELOPMENT UPDATE
Mark Jobling reports that after just 3 weeks, an amazing twenty girls have signed up to attend the Winter Coaching course at Sandylands, as below. That's terrific. There are 32 places and at this rate we may fill them all from UAJCA without having to offer places to others!! Fantastic #comeonthegirls
GIRLS' CRICKET DEVELOPMENT
First of all very many thanks to all parents and girls that turned out last night in awful weather at Sutton-in-Craven CC for the briefing on Girls Cricket in 2019. UAJCA is delighted at the response and is enthused about the chances of success for the initiative. We are of course grateful for the support and input from Mark Jobling and the NYWGCA in establishing their second centre at Skipton.
The principal requirement now is for girls to book a place [max 32] on the winter coaching course by phoning or emailing Mark. The course commences 27th January at Sandylands Sports Centre, Skipton for 10 weeks: January 27, February 3, 10, 17, March 3, 10, 17, 31, April 7, 14. Time: 3:30pm – 5:00pm
The second element of League Cricket for Girls will of course unfold in the 2019 season and Manager Neil will be in touch with all of you with the fixtures as soon as they are to hand [likely mid-March]. The option for the girls to play regularly together on Friday evenings at Haworth CC and at other grounds on other days, will significantly expand the volume of the girls' cricket and their development should rocket forwards. I reiterate the intention that Girls will still be able to play in their boys club and where on occasion fixtures clash, the choice of which team to play for, rests entirely with the girls and their parents.
If you require more information please contact Mark Jobling [NY Community Coach][07889-168721] or via firstname.lastname@example.org

UAJCA GIRLS AT SPOFFORTH
UAJCA GIRLS OVERCOME NEW HAWORTH BOYS
Whatever the outcome, manager-coach Neil Bishop couldn't lose as his Girls team took on his new Haworth team! Despite some wet weather the match finished with a comfortable win for the Girls over the young lads. A decent crowd watched the match between the two new sides and thanks must go to Haworth CC for staging the match and providing refreshments. The smile on the face of 6 year-old Betsy Caton's face after she took 2 wickets was priceless!! #getgirlsgoing
GIRLS FESTIVAL 2018
Twenty-One young ladies turned out at a sunny if cool Skipton CC for a first ever Girls Festival in Upper Airedale. It was a great result as the girls played out 3 matches in 3 teams: The Dallas, The Diamonds and the New Yorkers.
10 under-13s and 11 under-9s thoroughly enjoyed their cricket experiences playing with each other rather than battling with boys. Some had not played at all before. The team competition was won by the New Yorkers with the Silver Medals going to the Diamonds with the Dallas team taking Bronze. The managers determined that the u-13 girl of the Festival was Hema Bhatoa and the under-9 award should go to Jessica Clemson-Banks. Both girls will be invited to the UAJCA Presentation Night on Friday 14th September in the prestigious Malham Suite at the Rendezvous Hotel [7:30pm].
The parents were very supportive and showed enthusiasm to the experiment further and build on Neil Bishop's efforts thus far in developing girls team cricket. UAJCA Executive will now plan for a next phase of development during 2019.
