Lancashire Cricket's Former Players' Day
Restructure for Lancashire's Former Players Association
Lancashire Cricket welcomed back a number of former players to Emirates Old Trafford recently to take in a Royal London One-Day Cup match.
As part of his role as Head of Cricket Business, former Lancashire wicketkeeper Warren Hegg has restructured the Former Players Association, to create an improved relationship between the Club and its former players.
The Red Rose is proud of its heritage and ex-players were invited to enjoy lunch in the Brown Shipley Club Suite as well as take in some action from the class of 2019.
David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd, Mike Watkinson, Tom Smith, John Abrahams, Ian Austin, Stephen Moore and Simon Marshall were all amongst the ex-Red Rose players in attendance.

Speaking at the event, Warren Hegg said: “It’s been great to welcome a number of former players back to Emirates Old Trafford for a spot of lunch, a reminisce and to take in some cricket.
“As part of the new Former Players Association we’re trying to get as many former players as possible involved with the club again.
“Our aim is for people that have played for Lancashire Cricket to be able to come back, feel welcome and contribute to what we are growing here.”
Former player, Simon Marshall added: “I have had lunch having played 30/40 games for Lancashire myself, sitting alongside guys that have played Test cricket and 400 games for Lancashire.
“It is great to be in the same room as these guys and for us to be considered as part of one big family at the club.
“I am looking forward to seeing the continued growth of the Former Players Association.”
