Friday 28 August: Cregagh CC 2pm

Coaches: James Cameron Dow/ David Miller

NCU Women’s Lead Coach, James Cameron Dow commented:
"With a lot of cricket scheduled for the week ahead, the coaches have selected a wider squad than usual has been selected in order to make sure no one is over loaded. It is also a great opportunity for the Coaching team to have a look at a few new faces that have impressed for their clubs this season, as well as try out new combinations.

It will be good to have Irish International Cara Murray back in the mix, and will hopefully see her get a game during the series, subject to fitness. Amy Caulfield will once again Captain the side, while Joanne Logan (Muckamore), Rachael Harrison (Waringstown), Rachael Thomas (CSNI) and Sophie Hinds (Lurgan) are included for the first time. 

Instonians Wicket Keeper/ Batter, Amy Hunter will also hopefully be back in NCU colours to make her first appearance of the season for the women.A Series we have really been looking forward to, and hopefully the start of a fantastic relationship between the NCU and Jersey women, with next summer’s return trip to Jersey already booked!"
