North East Warriors – Senior Women – Open Trials

The North East Warriors are inviting trial applications for the Senior Women’s side ahead of the 2022 season.

The Warriors are a merged women’s team between Durham Cricket and Northumberland Cricket Board that played their first full season as a joint side this summer.

The team are looking for talented cricketers who are aged 18 and over and would like to trial for the high-performance side in November.

The Warriors feed into the ECB’s women’s pathway through working with the Northern Diamonds – a side that for two consecutive seasons reached the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy final, finishing as runners-up.

The merged senior side has had success within that pathway, having had four players included in the Diamonds squad in 2020 and three players – in 2021.

Now, as we look ahead to 2022, the coaching team of the North East Warriors are looking for female cricketers, who would like to trial for the senior side.


The trials will take place on Friday 5th, Friday 12th and Friday 26th November from 5.00pm until 9.00pm at The Riverside. The sessions will primarily focus on core cricket skills and fitness.

Players will not need to attend the full four-hour slots – they will be allocated their own observation times between 5.00pm and 9.00pm.

We are looking for applications from players aged 18 and over. Under-18 players will be identified and invited following the Under-18 trials, which are currently taking place.

Deadline to register is Thursday, 28th October.
