On Friday 27 April, Northampton High School pupil Abigail Passmore had the honour of captaining the GDST XI Cricket team vs Marleybone Cricket Club, in a historic match at Hampstead Cricket club.

Abigail led the GDST side, who were coached by England superstar Lydia Greenway, against a strong MCC XI which included both Beth Barrett-Wild and former England International Charlotte Edwards.

In a match set up to inspire the next generation of women to play cricket, MCC edged out the GDST XI by 44 runs, a superb display from Abigail and the rest of her team in an occasion that will certainly live long in the memory.
