Charlotte Edwards awarded MBE


The England Women’s Cricket Captain, Charlotte Edwards, has been awarded an MBE for services to cricket.

The England Women’s Cricket Captain, Charlotte Edwards, has been awarded an MBE for services to cricket.

 

Edwards, who led her team to World Cup glory in Australia in March, has worked extensively to promote cricket since making her international debut aged 16 and was last year awarded a Chance to Shine Coaching Contract to take cricket into state schools and clubs.

 

The 29 year old from Cambridgeshire was understandably delighted with the announcement and said: “It’s a fantastic honour and something I’m very proud of. It’s a great way to raise the profile of women’s cricket even more.

 

“It’s been a really special eighteen months for myself and the team and this has really topped it off.”

 

Edwards is currently leading the England Women’s team in the ICC World Twenty20 in the group stages in Taunton. In an unprecedented step by the ICC the women’s semi-finals will be on the same day at the same venue and on the same ticket as the men’s equivalent.
