The only all girls under 11 cricket team in Yorkshire, Barkisland, are having a ball after their first win in the Huddersfield Junior League.

The team are one of the few under 11 girls teams in the country and beat Bradley to record their first victory.

They are coached every Saturday morning by ex-England player Claire Taylor.

Dave Weston, from Barkisland CC, said: “It’s great for girls cricket to have a full team. By playing in a proper league they get regular games which motivates them to practice and improve.”
