Hilton Garden Inn Player of the Month - September

Hilton Garden Inn Player of the Month - September

Four players are in the running for the final Hilton Garden Inn Player of the Month award of the 2019 season

Voting has opened for the final Player of the Month award of 2019, sponsored by Hilton Garden Inn.

Hilton Garden Inn will be offering successful drawn voters a free hotel break at one of their hotels around the world.

Competition winners will be contacted once the vote is completed on Monday 7 October.

The following four are nominated for September's award

Richard Gleeson

The pacy seamer played in two of the final three First-Class games but was in explosive form, enough to make him Lancashire's leading Specsavers County Championship bowler for the season.

Gleeson was chief destroyer in the first innings against Derbyshire, taking his 9th career First-Class five-wicket haul which included a spell of four wickets inside six overs to rip through the visitors' middle-order.

He went one better in the final match at Leicestershire, taking career-best figures of 6/43 in the first innings including a spectacular out-swinging delivery to uproot Harry Swindells' off stump.

Three more in the second innings handed him nine for the game, taking his total for the month to 14 in just two outings.

Josh Bohannon

The 22-year-old produced one of the most memorable individual moments of the 2019 season, scoring his maiden First-Class century in the win over Derbyshire.

Promoted to number three by Head Coach Glen Chapple in the previous game at Glamorgan, Bohannon responded with a sizeable three-figure score to cap off another season of progress for the all-rounder.

He made it a big one, too, finishing on 174 and occupying the crease for nearly six hours, handing Lancashire the upper hand in a win which would confirm their return to Division One.

Tom Bailey

There's something about playing against Middlesex that Tom Bailey just loves.

Of the bowlers nine First-Class five-wicket hauls, five of them have come against the Lord's-based outfit - with two coming in September's clash at Emirates Old Trafford.

He produced a sensational spell at the end of the first day, taking an incredible 5/16 in just nine overs to leave the visitors on 39/6 at the close.

Bailey then bettered his figures second time around, finishing with 5/41 to end the game with his second ten-wicket match haul.


Liam Livingstone

A model of consistency in the middle-order, Liam Livingstone enjoyed a profitable close to the 2019 season.

The all-rounder struck three consecutive half-centuries in Lancashire's two home fixtures at Emirates Old Trafford, against Derbyshire and Middlesex.

Seventy one against the former helped build a formidable looking total alongside Josh Bohannon, before he fell just short of a century in an aggressive innings against Middlesex first time around. He followed it up with 68 second time around, making it 223 runs in three innings'.

He finished one shy of 600 Specsavers County Championship runs for the season from just 14 innings' averaging north of 46 in the process.
