Anson anticipating close relationship with Members

The Club's new Chairman is looking to work collaboratively with Members as he takes over from Acting Chairman, Les Platts

Lancashire Cricket Chairman, Andy Anson, is hoping for a collaborative relationship with the Club's Members as he seeks to grow the Membership.

Anson has been appointed as Chairman after Les Platts held the post of Acting Chairman following the passing of David Hodgkiss OBE earlier this year.

In his first interview with Lancashire Cricket TV, the 56-year-old set out his commitment to working with the current Members while attracting new supporters into Emirates Old Trafford.

Anson, who was born in Oldham, fondly recalls his time as a Junior Member in the 1970s and hopes to use that as inspiration as he starts his Chairmanship with immediate effect.

"The Members are the people who keep the Club alive, come through thick and thin, and watch the team in red ball cricket and white ball cricket," he said.

"We've got to work with the Members to become a stronger Club and we've got to build a stronger Membership base as well. That's a priority for all of us in the Board and the Executive Team.

"We do that by working collaboratively with the existing Members and then trying to find out the best ways to grow that.

"It's really important that we build that next generation of adult Members now by tapping into the junior market and building the appeal."
