Well travelled coach Colin Siller is taking charge of the Eagles in the Scottish Women's Regional Series which gets under way this weekend.

"I was given the opportunity to become the Head Coach of the Eagles in March, and we had one indoor practice before the lockdown so a lot of the players were away, either overseas or down south, so Iíve not actually seen half the squad play," Siller told CricketEurope.

"With Kathryn Bryce and Sarah Bryce starring down south in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy, the Eagles are missing their top two players, who are not only Wildcat players but genuine world class players, who are good enough that they could play in just about any team in the world.

"This gives a chance to a couple of the younger players to make a name for themselves. Emma Walsingham, is a young player who I have heard good things about and this will be an opportunity for her to show how good she is," added Siller.

"Then we have the likes of Katherine Fraser, who played in last yearís World Cup qualifying Tournament aged 14 and Hannah Rainey who was selected in 2019 for the ICC Women's Global Development Squad taking 3 for 19 against Surrey Stars and Ikra Farooq who has been starring for Scotland A, all these young players have a huge future ahead of them.

And the younger players will be well supported by the experience of players like Abbi Aitken-Drummond who will captain this Sunday and then Katie McGill who will Captain on the 20th.
