Danielle Collins and Rebecca Duckworth Selected for National School Games Teams

LANCASHIRE County Age Group girls under 17's duo Danielle Collins and Rebecca Duckworth have been selected for this year's School Games teams entered in the national competition by the ECB.

Danielle Collins plays her club cricket at Tottington St Johns CC as a left hand opening bat. She has scored over 450 runs for the county team this season including her highest score of 62.

Rebecca Duckworth, aged 16, plays at St Annes CC and Leyland Ladies as a right hand top order bat and off spin bowler. She has also scored over 450 runs including a century against Nottinghamshire Girls U17's.

The School Games provides the ECB with a competitive opportunity for high performing under 17 girls to compete in 3 squads comprising of 39 players. It also gives the players the experience of a high performance setting in a prestigious multi sport event with access to wider educational programmes for athletes, as well as the chance to meet with other competitors across a range of sports.

Neil Redford, Lancashire Girls Under 17's Coach, said:- "This is an excellent opportunity for Danielle and Rebecca to be selected for this year's National School Games competition alongside some of the best cricketers at this age group in the country. Danielle has really taken to opening the batting this year and has often taken apart the opening bowlers especially in the T20 format. She has played regularly in the Lancashire Women Second Team and will be looking to push for First Team squad place in the coming seasons. Rebecca has made some excellent progress this year particularly after bouncing back from a tough winter with illness to see her make her Lancashire Women's debut v Middlesex earlier this season. She has batted in a variety of roles in the top order and has also stepped in to captain the Under 17s side for the majority of the season. I'd like to wish them both every success in what should be an excellent opportunity for them to compete and learn from this high performance setting."

The 3 teams will compete in a Round Robin T20 tournament, at Loughborough, between Thursday, 31 August 2017 and Sunday, 3 September 2017. Further information available online.
