“The dinner was a great success and Ebony’s ‘after dinner talk’ was excellent and I think that everyone attending must have been motivated by her enthusiasm for the game, and the way we can overcome problems as they crop up in life.
She was so good in greeting and congratulating the players as they came forward for their trophies, and the two ladies (one the women;s captain) who attended from my own club were thrilled to be able to chat with her, she was such an encouragement to them, and her ability to hold the audience and to interact with them was a joy to see.” – Colin, General Secretary, Oxfordshire Cricket Association
