Cricket Scotland is pleased to announce a working relationship with FabLittleBag, market leaders in the period supportive movement.

The arrangement, announced on International Women’s Day, sees Cricket Scotland investing in women and girls’ cricket in Scotland by purchasing FLB dispensers for every club in the country that supports women and girls’ only teams.

The dispensers will be provided to clubs ahead of the start of the 2024 domestic season, which clubs can then install in changing rooms and toilet facilities.

The FabLittleBag mission statement stands for empowering women and girls in managing their periods and environmental responsibility, and they work with numerous sports clubs and organisations across the UK, including Scottish Hockey, Scottish Rowing and Bowls Scotland.

Anna Macrae, Cricket Scotland’s Women and Girls Development Manager, said:

“Period awareness is a hugely important issue for so many women and girls competing in cricket.

“There is continuous research that a lack of suitable facilities and taboo surrounding period talk results in many teenage girls leaving sport. This investment by Cricket Scotland for our clubs highlights our desire to grow and support Women’s & Girls cricket across the country.

“With this year’s campaign theme for International Women’s Day being #inspireinclusion, we are committed to giving women and girls every opportunity to participate in and enjoy cricket, and we are pleased to work with FabLittleBag to enable this to happen.”

Martha Silcott, CEO of FabLittleBag, said:

“We are delighted that Cricket Scotland have partnered with FabLittleBag and joined our Period Supportive Movement.

“They share our passion and commitment to ensuring that periods are not a barrier to participation in sports.  It is a pleasure to work with the National Governing Body in setting this new standard of period care in Scottish cricket.”
