THANKS to the support of the Somerset Cricket Board and the Active8 scheme - aimed at kick-starting ladies cricket - Huntspill & District Cricket Club has recently formed a women’s softball team.

The club has received eight weeks of coaching from Western Storm and Somerset Women player Sophie Luff, and Huntspill Ladies recently entered their first ever festival, hosted by Wembdon CC.

The teams finished fourth and sixth, and the players had a very enjoyable experience on debut.
