The Harvey-Benger Cricket Club women’s team are preparing for their inaugural game in Harvey this Sunday against Burekup.

It is the first time it has had a team in the regional women’s competition, with the club teaming up with Jones Welding Solutions to fit them out in full colour clothing for this year.

“The Bunbury & Districts Cricket Association are progressively moving towards full colour clothing for women’s cricket,” club president Haydn Jones said.

“We thought it would be best to lead by example and fit out our team with our full club colours, a first in women’s cricket in the BDCA.”

Most of the team’s players are new to cricket but have played some type of cricket, whether it is junior, backyard or beach forms of the sport.

While Jones is unsure of how the team will go this weekend, he is confident they will have a few laughs and improve during the year.

The side trains every Thursday from 5pm, with this Sunday’s game starting at 9.30am at the Harvey Recreation Ground.
