A visually impaired teenager has been recognised for her cricketing skills.

Lois Turner, 15, from Sutton, was invited on stage with the former England women’s captain, Clare Connor, and commended for her determination and courage.

The event was all part of the Cricket Foundation’s Girls on the Front Foot gala dinner at Mansion House on Wednesday, November 21.

Despite being affected by several different visual impairments Lois plays StreetChance cricket in Sutton with a sighted girls group, which has helped develop her confidence and improve her game.

StreetChance uses cricket to engage with young people living in areas affected by youth crime and anti-social behaviour or lacking traditional cricket provision.

Good for her! she is an inspiration
We need to hear more about people like her and less about the wasters and dregs of society that seem to fill our papers and TV
