Thame’s Women’s Squad Prepare for Life in the Top Flight!

2022 was a huge season for the Thame Town Women’s squad, as they not only won the Division 2 South title, but then beat Hitchin to become undisputed Div 2 champions, winning promotion to the new Home Counties Premier Division (PD).

Now comes another big season, as the Women step up to the newly-formed PD, which has been reduced to 10 teams from the 12 last year. The League’s plan is then to cut down to 8 teams, so at the end of this season 3 are expected to go down, with 1 being promoted from the division below, now called the “first division” (FD).

What’s more, the players’ stamina will be tested, with the PD now playing 40-over matches, against 35 in the FD and just 30 played last season!

The actual league season starts on 18th June at home v Moreton. Sarah’s squad has also entered a T20 knockout competition which starts on 23rd April; plus there is a Super-8, development league that runs throughout May & early-June.

For all girls (over 14), beginners and occasional players, there will be a Softball festival for women and girls at Church Meadow, from 12-4pm, on Sunday 7th May – everyone is welcome to come along and have a go!

The Women’s squad will begin their season next Sunday (16th, weather permitting) with a friendly at Church Meadow, against Wargrave, starting at 1pm. All support will be really welcome, next Sunday and throughout the season!!
