On Monday 22nd August, girls from Pryford CC and neighbouring clubs got the chance to take part in an International style fielding session with Lydia.

After a short introduction the girls got straight into having fun within their warm up. The fun didn’t stop there, with the girls breaking off into small groups to take part in a fielding circuit to test their skills, ranging from high catching on the boundary, sharp slip catching and perfecting throws for run outs. The players were hanging of Lydia’s every word when giving out her top tips with the session finishing with a fun competition.

It was great to see everyones competitive nature come out with each team wanting to come out on top. At the end of the competition everyone popped inside the club house where numerous questions were fired at the England legend, which she answered in great fashion!

All in all it was a fabulous afternoon in the sun, with girls going home with smiles on their faces and the next generation of England Women cricketers being inspired for life!”
