Derbyshire players Alice Dyson and Sarah Glenn have been included in England Women’s Winter Development Programme.

Seam bowler Dyson and leg-spinner Glenn, who are both 16 years old, will take part in a training camp at the National Cricket Performance Centre in Loughborough.

The Development Programme will commence in October and will run through into the New Year for the two Derbyshire youngsters who are included in a squad of 19 players.

ECB’s Director of England Women’s Cricket, Clare Connor, said: “The England women’s cricket pathway is wider reaching and better resourced than ever before, and it is particularly encouraging to see some exciting young prospects coming through from the England Women’s Development Programme.

“We saw during the Women’s Ashes series this summer that the standard of international women’s cricket is constantly being pushed forwards and we must ensure that we have a structure in place that produces a continual stream of talented players, who are ready to perform in an England shirt if the opportunity arises.”
