Lydia is a contributor to the Sports Insights publications and her most recent article addressed the implications of the financial fair play rules. Lydia also speaks regularly on sports law subjects including, “Interpretation of contracts in a sporting context” and “Fixed term contracts in sports”. Lydia's keen interest in sport stems from personal connections to the world of cricket and football. The many hours sitting at various county grounds under grey skies or in the rain and snow at Villa Park have confirmed a lasting passion which she is keen to further through her legal practice.
