Their coach Jonathan Cirkel sent us these images from the airport en-route to Colombo. The tour party comprises 15 girls, plus Jonathan as coach and a representative of the county office. Amy Price, Captain of the Herts Ladies Cricket Team is on the tour and pictured holding the banner on the left. Our financial support helped pay for the kit bags for the team – as you can see they are very proud of them and the bags look great with our logo on them!
This is part of the Club’s Audrey Collins legacy project – see this web page for more information www.sigbi.org/st-albans/charities/cricket – Audrey Collins OBE was a past Member of the Club who played for England’s women’s cricket team and was a pioneer in women and girls’ cricket.
We look forward to hearing all about the tour with action photos when they return. Meanwhile there are links to a couple of short videos on Twitter below – enjoy!

Fantastic effort from the @hertscricket ladies team in their first match in Sri Lanka. It's hot, it's humid but the girls are coping well and eager to start the next match. Go girls! @HCLWandG #lionssportstravel #hertsgirlsontour #srilankacrickettour pic.twitter.com/fwGH6A080H
