A working mum from St Albans has achieved “a huge honour” by captaining the England Ladies masters squash side – and leading them to victory in the home internationals.
Louisa Dalwood was a former county player at junior level but left the sport for 15 years due to working full time and starting a family.
But she wanting a personal challenge and after picking the racquet back up, was invited to play for Hertfordshire before deciding to start on the 35/40 masters circuit.
That led to her being chosen as captain and leading England to 5-0 victories over Ireland and Scotland and 4-1 over Wales.
She said: “It was a privilege to be asked to captain the side, especially in my first year.

“I always loved playing but didn’t have the time. I always missed it and needed a personal challenge.
“It was a really big honour and I am going to try again next year.”
