Girls Talent Pathway


The Berkshire Women & Girls Talent Pathway is responsible for identifying and developing home grown cricketers to play for Berkshire and the Southern Vipers. We believe that the learning and development of core fundamentals underpins the foundations from which a young player can progress. Across our pathway, we seek to prepare players for the next level of cricket and help players develop a lifelong love of the game.

Berkshire Cricket has a rich history within the Women’s game. Until the formation of the Regional Domestic Structure, Berkshire Women spent most of their time competing in Division 1 of the Women’s County Championship. A host of international players have also represented Berkshire including current England Captain Heather Knight, Anya Shrubsole, Isa Guha and Claire Taylor.

The talent pathway also has a strong history of producing players that go on to play regional and international cricket including Lauren Bell (England & Southern Vipers), Mia Rogers (Sunrisers), Alice Macleod (Sunrisers) and Ava Lee (Southern Vipers & England U19). We also contribute a significant number of players that form part of the Southern Vipers Academy & Emerging Player Programmes. In 2023/24, we currently have 3 players on the Academy making up 25% of the group, along with 8 EPP players again making up 25% of this year’s cohort.
