Alexia Walker, current member of England women’s ODI team and the captain of Sussex women’s team, has been appointed cricket director at BrightonCollege in Sussex. The 26-year-old Walker also leads England women’s academy team that is currently playing a 3-match series against Pakistan. By this appointment, Alexia Walker, will supervises the training and coaching programs at the college which has so far produced a number of national cricketers including Matt Prior, the wicketkeeper-batsman for England national team and Sussex county side, Clare Connor, former captain of England women’s team and chief of England women’s cricket, and the youngest ever cricketer of England women’s team, Holly Colvin.
So, you can see that BrightonCollege has a rich tradition of cricket and this is perhaps the only college in the country where girls are also allowed to play alongside boys. Alexia Walker is one of the most promising cricketers of England national women’s team and given his current role as a cricket director of BrightonCollege, it seems that she could pursue a coaching career after her retirement as a cricketer.
