The girls cricket team from Golden Hill Sports have been chosen as one of the teams to be Anthem Mascots for the International Cricket Council’s Women’s World Cup this summer when Australia play New Zealand on July 2nd at Gloucester Cricket County Ground in Bishopston.

The 2017 season started officially for Golden Hill on April 26 when the club unveiled their new multi-coloured team shirts. All agreed that it’s a smart outfit that really make the girls look the part. 

Girls Cricket at Golden Hill Sports is now in its second year and enthusiasm for the game is increasing, having gone from 13 girls interested this time last year to now 40. The girls range in age from year 3 to year 8 and train at Golden Hill on Wednesday nights from 6pm onwards and on various Sundays throughout the year. They take part in Kwik Cricket Festivals including one at Golden Hill - Kwik Cricket is all about fun and giving every one a chance.

Chris Drew from Golden Hill Sport Club said: “We would like to thank Bristol City Council and the Transformer grant for making the new shirts possible. Also for the first time, we trained with the Ladies Cricket team and we see this as the way ahead for the future.

“We are very much supporting the nationwide campaign of ‘This Girl Can’ and we want to give all girls a chance to participate and enjoy cricket as a team sport.”
