Since setting up the Belladonnas (Brisley’s inaugural ladies cricket team) in 2018, the ladies’ team has gone from strength to strength. With the men’s team very much in support, Kevin Denmark, from The Norfolk Cricket Board, have been hugely instrumental in assisting the ladies from knowing literally nothing, to them confidently swinging a bat and leading the team to a cup winning victory at the end of the season in 2018.
Over the winter, so as not to lose momentum, the ladies have been busy keeping fit; organising weekly Pilates sessions and indoor training. Now that Spring has finally sprung, Brisley cricket club has the honour of welcoming Head of Women’s cricket at the MCC, Danni Warren at the end of April. Danni is very generously giving up her time to spend the afternoon working with juniors and adults offering valuable advice and training.
In May the ladies are taking their first tour – to play the Amigas, Portugal’s first ever ladies team based at The Woodlands in Pousaflores. Watch this space for details of their trip….
