Women and Girls Cricket ‘Get Together’ – Saturday 6th April 2024

27th February 2024

The Norfolk Cricket Board is delighted to be hosting its first Women and Girls Cricket Conference on Saturday 6th April.

The day has been constructed to celebrate the amazing contribution and achievements of women and girls in Norfolk whilst also trying to entice new players, coaches, umpires, scorers and administrators into the game.  

The conference will be hosted by Norfolk Cricket Board Chair Jane Hannah BEM and we are delighted to be joined by Sue Redfern MBE, former England Player and more recently the first ICC female umpire appointed to a bilateral series. Sue has also broken boundaries by being the first female umpire to stand in a men’s county championship match. 

Other special guests include Janet Southgate (Former England Player), Emily Dack (Former Sunrisers player and current coach) and other key influencers from within Norfolk Cricket.

There will be Q&A’s with our special guests, Sue Redfern (Internation Umpire and former England Cricketer), Emily Dack (Sunrisers Coach and former Norfolk Women’s Captain) and Janet Southgate (Former England Cricket International Player), and hosted by our Chair of Directors Jane Hannah.
