Where did it all start!? Coached by Matt Gee & Andrew Sinker, the Ninjas began their journey in the Spring of 2019, with a fine mixture of cricketers wives, girlfriends, daughters, and friends making up the squad.
After a series of successful afternoon’ of Prosecco Cricket, our ladies section is thriving, with between 20-30 ladies playing a combination of light hearted festival ‘Soft ball‘ and slightly more competitive League Soft Ball.
Our cricketing standard is varied, but there are two things that remain fixed – Fun & Laughter, regardless of if you are part of a Festival or League Team…Our ladies don’t take themselves too seriously – They throw themselves into it, and have a giggle along the way! This is what soft ball cricket is all about.
In our first season of League Soft Ball, we finished joint top of the league, missing out only to Net Run Rate! Going into the 2020 season, we will look to build on our success by fielding 2 League teams into the Liverpool & District Cricket Women’s Competition.
The Ninja’s rise in 2019 has been pivotal in The Northern Club being awarded the Lancashire Foundation Club of the Year, and this is just the beginning of what will be a big chapter in the clubs illustrious history.
2020 will see the start of the next generation in Girls Cricket at the Norther Club. We have formed our first under 11 Softball team!
