Yorkshire Women's Team

Yorkshire women’s cricket club is a club built on history and prided on the future. Over the years Yorkshire has enjoyed success, fought in relegations, fielded internationals and ultimately increased participation rates.

  • Melissa Reynard, Laura Spragg, Katherine Brunt, Danielle Hazell and Lauren Winfield are amongst some of the names to of pulled on the white rose and the three lions.

    In addition, the junior set up has enabled young players to thrive and improve and the club also has several young girls within the England u15s, u19s and academy squads. This is credit to a strong junior system, passionate coaches and a unique determination within the club. However, it hasn’t all been an uphill climb. After battling through a tough time and being relegated twice in two years the club has rebuilt itself, developed youngsters, attracted internationals and worked hard to drive back up to Division 1.

  • Last year the first team started to show signs of a great team unit, true potential and a desire to win; which saw them reaching the county championship final. Unfortunately, on the day however it wasn’t to be and the County Championship was retained by a star filled Sussex team.

    Alternatively, the final was not only a huge landmark for Yorkshire Cricket but also the last game with the successful captain Salliann Briggs. Salliann played a huge role in bringing Yorkshire from the bottom back to the top and is a player, captain and person who will be sorely missed. However, when one door closes, another door opens and this gives opportunity to Lauren Winfield to take the role as captain, with Katherine Brunt as vice-captain.

  • Danielle Hazell

  • The squad currently hosts a a fantastic blend of experience, youth and depth which is continually growing, improving and striving and with this in mind makes it very exciting times ahead.

    Ultimately, after becoming so close to clinching the county championship last year, it is clear that this year Yorkshire women have one goal they have their eyes set on…To win the County Championship! All considered, it is a very exciting and prosperous time for the ladies.
