Hall of Fame officially opened

Hall of Fame officially opened

The first seven players were inducted in a special ceremony at Emirates Old Trafford this evening (Thursday 20 February)

On an emotional night at Emirates Old Trafford, seven former players - all synonymous with the Red Rose - became the first names to be entered into the Lancashire Cricket Hall of Fame. 

Hosted by Director of Cricket, Paul Allott, A N Hornby and Cyril Washbrook were the first to be honoured with Club Historian, Malcolm Lorimer, and Keith Hayhurst receiving commemorative caps on their behalf. 

They were followed by Brian Statham, whose son Terry was in attendance to accept his cap, before Jack Bond's widow Florence came forward following a touching tribute from former teammate Jack Simmons. 

Farokh Engineer who couldn't be present, sent a video message alongside Head of Cricket Business Warren Hegg direct from Mumbai - where Lancashire are currently on their pre-season tour. 

Simmons and Sir Clive Lloyd were then invited forward to receive their honour before a Q&A with Allott which reflected on their time together at the Club and the success of the 1970s side.
