Record numbers of Gloucestershire Girls selected for Western Strom pathway

Western Storm have announced their 23/24 cohorts for the Academy and Emerging Player’s Programme.

Gloucestershire Cricket Foundation are delighted to see so much representation within the region.

Laura Charles-Price – Head of Women and Girls Cricket in the County Said:

All selected have been involved in Gloucestershire Cricket Foundation’s own Emerging Player Programme, We had hoped the additional coaching hours available to these already talented young women, would aid their progress. We are delighted to see that their hard work and the additional investment has provided all involved with the opportunity to be selected within the Western Storm pathway. I am really excited to see them all develop further and look forward to seeing their progress.

It is fantastic to see Liv Daniels obtain an Academy place after a year of hard work within the EPP and also Sophie Smith Graham as a new addition to the EPP.

Congratulations to all those who have been selected.
