2016 women’s fixtures announced

Saturday 6th February 2016

Women

Kent Women will begin their bid for a record seventh County Championship title on the road with trips to Somerset and Sussex on the May Day Bank Holiday weekend.

Their first home fixture is against Middlesex at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence with all other home fixtures at The County Ground, Beckenham where they end the season against Berkshire.

Yorkshire won a sixth County Championship title last summer to join Sussex and Kent as six-time winners but despite missing out last season, Kent are confident their conveyor belt of cricketers will continue to produce promising players.

Women's team manager Lin Martin said: “The Kent age groups are full of talent and we’re trying to bring that through alongside our internationals. It’s such an exciting time for women’s cricket with the exposure the game is getting.

“We are bidding for a record seventh County Championship which would be a fantastic achievement.

“The facilities for the players at The County Ground, Beckenham are excellent.

“Many of the players live in the area and we train at the new indoor school there which is one of the best in the country.

“It’s a very good pitch too so we expect some entertaining cricket over the four days there.

“It will be great to play Surrey there as everyone is aware of the rivalry and we managed to win at the Kia Oval last year without our England players so I’m sure they will be keen to make amends.”

There will be a mid-season break for the new six-team Women's T20 Super League for four weeks in July and August
