And Wessex fans were quick to comment on the post, with user @loveforcambridg commenting: “Lovely message. Congratulations to the girls.”

England captain Hollie Pearne-Webb told the BBC: “I’m a bit lost for words – it’s the first time in history we’ve ever done this.

“It’s a new group. I think over the next two years it’s pretty exciting when we join up with the GB squad when the Scots and the Welsh come in.

“The crowd’s support has been absolutely phenomenal. I just feel so lucky that it’s in my career that we get a home Commonwealth Games.”
