Cricketing pioneer Enid Bakewell will be the guest speaker at the next meeting of the Nottingham Cricket Lovers' Society.

Bakwell, widely regarded as one of the greatest players in women's cricketing history, will speak on Thursday 4 November in the Long Room at Trent Bridge, with the meeting commencing at 7.30pm.

The Nottinghamshire-born all-rounder played Test and International cricket between 1968 and 1979 and was a member of the England Women’s team which won the first World Cup in 1973.

Prolific with both bat and ball, Bakewell's contribution to the game saw her awarded an MBE in the New Years’ Honours List of 2019.

Membership of the Cricket Lovers' Society costs £15 per year, and includes complimentary access to each of the society's monthly meetings across the winter.

Supporters are also welcome to pay £5 on the door to attend an individual meeting.
