Profile

Clare Connor finished her six-year stint as England captain by winning the Ashes, but missed the winter tour of the subcontinent that followed through injury and announced her retirement soon after, even though she was still not 30. She had been juggling a number of balls for some time. She teaches English and PE at Brighton College while heading up their PR operations, and managed to squeeze in commentary stints on Channel 4 among other media work (although she was helped by having a sabbatical). She received the MBE in 2004 and after a glittering 2005 the OBE was added to her many other achievements which include being named Vodafone Player of the Year in 2002.
