England Ladies cricketer Lydia Greenway held a joint coaching session for Under-13 female cricketers from Watford Town and Abbots Langley.

The left-handed batsman is an ambassador for the Cricket Foundation’s Chance to Shine programme, which is trying to bring cricket back into schools.

The initiative currently employs seven England players on coaching contracts, combining their international training and playing commitments with coaching young girls.

Into its ninth year, the Chance to Shine campaign continues to motivate and educate youngsters through cricket, with 46 per cent of the 350,000 youngsters engaged in Chance to Shine in 2013 being girls.

Gulfraz Riaz, of Watford Town, said: “We were really pleased to be given an opportunity to host Lydia Greenway at Watford Town CC and it was fantastic to see so many girls come along for the coaching session from Watford Town CC and Abbots Langley CC.

“All the girls had a great time and no doubt were inspired to continue enjoying their cricket having had a chance to spend a quality coaching session with Lydia.”
