Clare Elizabeth Taylor MBE (born 22 May 1965) is an English sportswoman, the first woman to have played on a World Cup team in both cricket and football. She represented England at both cricket, as a member of the winning World Cup cricket team in 1993, and football (World Cup 1995). She was awarded the MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours in 2000 for her services to women’s sport. Taylor attended Moor End High School and still has her name on the athletics records board.
During her amateur sporting career, Taylor was employed by the Royal Mail. Though she noted: "The amount of time I spend away on unpaid leave has got beyond a joke." Although Taylor preferred football to cricket, she focused on cricket after being dropped from the England football team.
