Glasgow joins West Indies women’s training squad
Vincentian Jannillea Glasgow has been named by the Cricket West Indies (CWI) selection panel in a 30-member women’s squad for an estimated month-long West Indies high-performance camp, which started last Sunday in Antigua.
Glasgow, 16, a right-arm medium-fast bowler and a handy batter, is among eight faces who were not part of the first camp which was held in January of this year.
The others are Zaida James (St Lucia), Rashada Williams (Jamaica), Caneisha Isaac (Guyana), Shanika Bruce and Kycia Knights (Barbados), Mandy Mangru (Guyana) and Rachel Vincent (Trinidad and Tobago).
Afy Fletcher and Natasha Mc Clean, who were part of the first camp, are not in the second, while Knights returns to the West Indies set up after a lay off because of injury.
Meanwhile, Glasgow joins fellow Vincentian Japhina Joseph, who is also in the squad. Joseph was part of the first camp.
The full squad reads: Aaliyah Alleyne, Reniece Boyce, Shanika Bruce, Shemaine Campbelle, Shamilia Connell, Britney Cooper, Deandra Dottin, Cherry Ann Fraser, Shabika Gajnabi, Jannillea Glasgow, Sheneta Grimmond, Shawnisha Hector, Chinelle Henry, Caneisha Isaac, Zaida James, Qiana Joseph, Kycia Knight, Kyshona Knight, Mandy Mangru, Hayley Matthews, Anisa Mohammed, Chedean Nation, Karishma Ramharack, Kaysia Schultz, Shakera Selman, Steffi Soogrim, Stafanie Taylor, Rachel Vincent and Rashada Williams.
Courtney Walsh is the head coach, with assistant coaches Ryan Austin, Corey Collymore, Steve Liburd, Robert Samuels and Vincentian Samantha Lynch.
The team’s manager is Sheena Gooding. Neil Barry is the physiotherapist, with Shayne Cooper – strength and conditioning coach, Garry Belle – team analyst, Amanda Johnson – team mental skills coach, and Naasira Mohammed – media and content officer.
The West Indies team is preparing for international engagements, including the ICC women’s World Cup qualifiers, rescheduled for December.
