Old Terringtonian set for sixth international cap

2

Old Terringtonian Becky Glen has been selected for the 14-strong Scotland women’s cricket squad to travel to Spain at the end of June for the ICC Women’s Qualifier Europe 2019 between Germany, Netherlands and Scotland.

Becky, who left Terrington in 2007 for Sedbergh School, received her first cap for Scotland in August 2017 in a series against Ireland, and now has five full international caps. She is currently teaching boys’ and girls’ cricket and hockey at Barnard Castle and is joining Bishop Stortford College in September as a sports coach.

Becky’s cricket career began at Terrington Hall in Year 2 in the days when Terrington ran an U7 team. She more than proved her worth and went on to play for the U9, U11 and U13 teams.

She recalls: ‘I was the only girl in the boys’ team but that wasn't an issue, after getting a wicket or two the opposition soon knew where they stood! I remember a few opposing players crying after getting out to a girl and that caused some amusement when I later ended up at Sedbergh with them.’

She played a couple of games for North Yorkshire, progressing to play for Yorkshire at U15 and U17, and then had a season playing first team. When she left Sedbergh, she joined Durham County Ladies and is now in her seventh season with them, captaining them to promotion last season and to their highest finish in a T20 campaign.
