North Midlands Women will travel to Leicester to play a training match against Old Newtonians on Sunday May 5 (1pm).
The fixture will give valuable game time to players between matches in the Gill Burns County Championship and also give players who were not involved in last week’s defeat by Lancashire the chance to stake their claim for selection for the match against Durham at Hartlepool Rovers on May 12.
