The local Nottinghamshire women’s cricket team has recently moved from the Loughborough University grounds to the Trent Bridge cricket ground with an exciting new name. Following months of consultation with local supporters, the regional squad will now be known as ‘The Blaze’.

The move to Trent Bridge is expected to provide a much better platform and improved facilities for the team, as they look to build on a successful past couple of years.

The team’s Head Coach, Adam Kennedy, says that the move to the broader Nottinghamshire region will bring more fans and supporters to the ground as a base for their activities.

“This move opens up a lot of potential opportunities for us to really build and develop the team going forward. Being affiliated with Trent Bridge will give us access to first-class facilities and state-of-the-art equipment. Also, being based in the wider community means that more people will be aware of the group and will potentially come out to supports the games.”

The team’s manager, Kelly Cunliffe, was also enthusiastic about the move to the new ground and the associated name change.

“The new title ‘The Blaze’ is a great fit for us, as this symbolizes the burning passion and energy that our team aspires to bring. I am looking forward to the new facilities, which are expected to help enhance our performances on the field,” commented Cunliffe.

The team’s senior players have also expressed their excitement and have high hopes for the move. Sophie Mcpherson, a senior player in the squad, believes that the relocation to Trent Bridge will bring about a renewed energy throughout the team and create an exciting future for the team.

“We as a team have worked hard thus far, and I feel that this move to a more professional and established first-class ground will be instrumental in our progress over the next few years,” applauded McPherson.

The group has, therefore, made a major shift ahead of the 2021 season. The team, which was previously known as ‘The Lightening,’ will now call themselves ‘The Blaze’, as they embark upon their journey to Trent Bridge cricket ground.
