Prior to the ECS Series in Barcelona, Cricket España and the Cataluyna Cricket Association teamed together to hold a Ladies training weekend at the iconic Montjuic Stadium in Barcelona.

The Women’s Director of Cricket, Elspeth Fowler and the Junior Director of Spanish Cricket Rico Phull joined forces with the regional coaches Nadim and Shabaz to put the girls through a series batting, fielding and bowling techniques over the two day period.

During that time they were also joined by the German international Verena Stolle, who was in Barcelona as part of ECS crew getting ready for the 15 day event that is currently taking place there.

Verena commented, “It was a pleasure to meet the Spanish girls at the baseball ground in Barcelona and to join their practice session with Rico and Elspeth. The fun and loud support during training makes them a nice group of girls to work with. I saw talented bowlers, batters and wicket keepers. All of them enjoyed training so hopefully they will continue and become the next generation of good cricketers. Best luck for their future! ”
