Cricket for Girls are delighted to announce fantastic news about our Head Coach, Lydia Greenway, who has been awarded an Honorary Life Membership from the MCC, Lords. This most prestigious award comes after Lydia retired from the International game last June having represented England 225 times in all formats of the game, during a career spanning 13 years.
During her career, Lydia helped England win two World Cups, as well as five Ashes series. She also had her own individual success, winning Englands Player of the Year in 2011, as well as being twice shortlisted ICC World Player of the Year. During her career, Lydia earned a reputation for being the best fielder in the world, as well as an innovative middle order batter by mastering an array of sweep, reverse sweep and ramp shots, often causing headaches for the opposing captains setting the fields.
On learning the news, Lydia said “To be recognised by the most prestigious and iconic establishment in cricket is a huge honour and privilege, and I feel extremely proud to be joining some of the biggest names in cricket by receiving this honour. I look forward to watching many games of cricket from the Long Room!”
