Alison recently hosted the ECB England Cricketer of the Year Awards in the Long Room at Lord’s. The prestigious event is attended by the senior England men’s and women’s teams, as well as administrators, sponsors and journalists, with Ian Bell and Charlotte Edwards the top award winners. The night was deemed a huge success, helped by Alison having a good rapport with guests on stage, and creating a convivial atmosphere despite the men’s team enduring a torrid winter in Australia.
