Gracie Cornwell, from Lional Walden School, was offered the chance to attend a press conference with the England Cricket Team at the ground with her father Andy.

It came as part of March Town Cricket Club’s All Stars money can’t buy big moment experience.

At the event children were able to ask a question to the players.
