  ECB fund sixth professional contract for each Regional Women’s team  

EACH women’s regional team will have an additional professional contract this season with the ECB funding a sixth contract per team for 2021/22.

ECB Managing Director of Women’s Cricket, said: “It’s absolutely fundamental to the future of women's and girls’ cricket in England and Wales that we’re able to continue increasing the depth of our regional game by offering more professional contracts to our players.

“We cannot overstate the impact that a new professional structure is having on our game. We’ve already seen the positive impact it has had on players’ performances in a relatively short space of time. The players are thriving, raising standards across the game and deepening the potential talent pool for England Women.

“Just as important is the visibility of these players, showing young girls that cricket is a game that can offer them a professional future.

“Professionalising the women’s game is a significant chapter for our sport and I’m thrilled that we’re able to continue that momentum by increasing the number of professional contracts on offer.”

Dani Gibson, Alex Griffiths, Georgie Hennesy, Sophie Luff, Fi Morris and Nat Wrath are the six contratced with Western Storm.
