MCC champion women’s cricket at Loughborough

I was delighted to read today that Loughborough University has been named as the country’s first women’s University Centre of Cricket Excellence (UCCE) thanks to additional funding from Marylebone Cricket Club. MCC’s investment of nearly £30,000 in the Loughborough centre takes the total Club spend on the six UCCE’s (collectively known as MCC Universities) past the £2 million mark since 2005, the year that it began funding the scheme.

As a graduate of Loughborough University and an MCC member, I am delighted by this announcement because of the important boost it will give to the development of the womens game. .
