Old Buckenham Cricket Club have pulled off an early-season coup with a visit coming up next month from former England women’s captain Charlotte Edwards.

Edwards will be visiting the club on Tuesday, May 9 in her role as a “Chance to Shine Ambassador” to conduct a coaching session with the Bucks’ highly successful ladies and girls section.

She retired from international cricket in 2016 after a stellar career with England that included 23 Test matches, 195 ODIs and 95 Twenty20s.

Chance to Shine is a charitable organisation which seeks to promote cricket in primary and junior schools throughout the country.

Club secretary John Williams said: “Having someone of the stature of Charlotte Edwards visit us is a great honour for Old Buckenham CC.

“It is testimony to the way our youth policy - both at club level and within local schools - is bearing fruit.”
