LONDON: Five of England’s Cricket World Cup winners – including Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes – feature in the Queen’s New Year Honours list, as does the Football Association’s Baroness Sue Campbell.

Captain Morgan becomes a CBE, Stokes is appointed an OBE, and team-mates Jos Buttler and Joe Root are made MBEs. Coach Trevor Bayliss becomes an OBE.

Baroness Campbell, the FA’s director of women’s football, is made a dame after a landmark year of women’s sport.

As well as the four players and coach Bayliss, England and Wales Cricket Board chairman Colin Graves becomes a CBE.

England netballers Serena Guthrie, 29, and Jo Harten, 30, become MBEs, as does Kelly Sotherton, who was retrospectively awarded a second Olympic heptathlon bronze in September.

Two-time Olympic taekwondo champion Jade Jones, 26, becomes an OBE, as do Solheim Cup captain Catriona Matthew and horse racing trainers Nicky Henderson and Paul Nicholls.

There is an MBE for ex-Southampton defender Francis Benali, who completed five Ironmans in a week in May to raise money for charity.

Baroness Campbell becomes a dame after England reached the Women’s World Cup semi-final in July, though their hopes of making it to the final for the first time were dashed by eventual champions the United States.

The 71-year-old became a Baroness in 2008 after five years chairing UK Sport and says the damehood is an “immense privilege”.

“I feel very grateful and it’s a reflection of all the hard work an awful lot of people have put in to women’s football and my life in sport generally,” she added.

Midfielder Jill Scott, who was part of England’s World Cup side and has 151 international caps, is made an MBE as is Gabby Logan, who presented coverage of the competition on the BBC.

Wales defender Loren Dykes, who won her 100th international cap in April, and Scottish football trailblazer Rose Reilly also become MBEs.  Later in July, England, captained by Guthrie, reached the semi-finals of the Netball World Cup on home soil and went on to win bronze.

In May, Jones – who won Olympic taekwondo gold in 2012 and 2016 – claimed her first world title in front of a home crowd in Manchester and in September golfer Matthew captained Europe to a sensational Solheim Cup victory against the United States.

Former squash world champion and three-time Commonwealth Games silver medallist Laura Massaro, who announced her retirement in May, becomes an MBE as does British Gymnastics chief executive Jane Allen.

The honours for England’s cricketers cap a year in which the side became world champions with a dramatic super-over victory against New Zealand, though they werfailed to reclaim the Ashes despite Stokes’s memorable efforts in the third Test.

Stokes’ summer heroics included a man-of-the-match performance in the World Cup final and an unbeaten 135 in the one-wicket third Ashes Test triumph against Australia.

Wicketkeeper Buttler broke the stumps to seal England’s home World Cup win in July, before Root captained England’s Test team in the Ashes.

“I’m very proud to have been awarded a CBE,” said Morgan. “Winning the World Cup has been a dream come true and the honours and awards that have come since that day at Lord’s really mean a lot to everyone connected with the team.

“The events of that day at Lord’s were the result of many years of hard work and dedication, and I see this honour – and the honours for my team-mates – as honours for the whole team, for everything they put into winning that tournament and getting over the line.”

Root told BBC Sport: “I am extremely proud, privileged and humbled by this honour.

“It was a monumental summer. Everyone threw everything into it and to come out as world champions – it’s definitely one I’ll look back fondly on.”

Ex-West Indies captain Lloyd is not the only past cricketer to be recognised: West Indies opener Gordon Greenidge receives a knighthood on the overseas list and England wicketkeeper Alan Knott, who played from 1967-85, becomes an MBE.

Former Paralympics GB wheelchair basketballer Martin McElhatton is made an OBE, while four-time Paralympic champion runner Michael McKillop becomes an MBE.
