20 September 2019 Speaker: Charlotte Edwards CBE
The next Ipswich Sporting Lunch Club will take place on Friday, 20 September 2019 at Wherstead Park, Ipswich.
The guest speaker is Charlotte Edwards CBE, who became one of the most significant female cricketers of all time during a 20-year international career, for 10 of which she was England captain. She became the youngest woman to have played for England when she made her debut against New Zealand at Guildford at the age of 16 and went on to be central to the evolution of the women's game. She led England on 220 occasions. Under her captaincy England won three Ashes series (2008, 2013 and 2014) and a World Cup/World Twenty20 double in 2009. She was the first player, either male or female, to score 2500 runs in T20 internationals.
