A GROUP of budding sportswomen could soon receive coaching from the best in its field.

The Weston Cricket Club Ladies XI has reached the final three in the Travelex Sports Exchange competition.

It means the team could be taught how to perfect their skills by the likes of Australian Test cricketers, batsman Adam Gilchrist, and pace bowler Brett Lee.

The girls, who won the Somerset Ladies' league this year and the Somerset eight-a-side tournament, completing the season unbeaten, now need residents to help support them by logging on to www.travelex.co.uk/sport and voting.

The Travelex Sports Exchange is a new initiative that rewards people by giving them the chance to travel across the world and receive the best coaching for their chosen sport.
