Nalisha Makes Lancashire First Team!
Tuesday, 29 May 2012
Year 9 pupil Nalisha Patel has been selected for the Lancashire County Cricket Women's first team, an amazing achievement for her age!
Nalisha is the youngest player in the squad which usually ranges from age 17 upwards. She can now be selected for group matches against other county teams which will lead to a semi final and then a final.
Nalisha has already been identified as a potential player of the future by the Lancashire Cricket Board in the 2012 Levels of Excellence and has been training with the EPP (Emerging Players Programme), a scheme which supports the development of selected young players with elite performance potential.
