The new Wynnum-Manly/Redlands combined team, nicknamed the “Baysiders”, will make its debut over the weekend in the opening rounds of the T20 competition that gets underway tonight.
Wests host Ipswich/Logan tonight from 6pm at Chelmer with the competition finishing on Sunday night under lights when Valley host Wests at Norm McMahon Oval at Ashgrove.
While the Konica Minolta Queensland Fire players will be absent from their respective club's line-ups, there are several former Queensland players in action over the weekend including Leteysha Randall (Valley), Belinda McDougall (Gold Coast) and Lacey Hinze (University of Qld) as well as current Fire squad players Meagan Dixon and Courtney Sippel.
All of the women’s matches will be live-streamed through the Bulls Masters Premier Cricket match centre, which will also carry tomorrow’s third round of the Sci-Fleet Motors men’s One Day competition.
Wynnum-Manly previously fielded a first-grade women's team 11 seasons ago, before women’s Premier cricket was restructured.
Former Australian and Queensland wicket-keeper Julia Price, an inaugural inductee into the Queensland Cricket Women’s Hall of Fame earlier this year, played for Wynnum-Manly throughout her career.
The new team joins Wests, University of Queensland, Valley, Gold Coast,, Sandgate-Redcliffe and Ipswich/Logan for the 2019-20 Katherine Raymont Shield.
Gold Coast are the reigning T20 champions after beating Valley last season.
