Lancashire Cricket launches Hall of Fame
Seven former players to be inducted into the Hall of Fame
Lancashire Cricket is proud to announce the launch of a Hall of Fame which will celebrate and honour leading figures from the Club’s history.
The Red Rose has a rich heritage and following last year’s restructuring of the Former Players Association, to create an improved relationship between the Club and its former players, the Hall of Fame will now see a number of the counties’ cricketing legends inducted annually.
An exclusive dinner, to celebrate the first seven players to be inducted into the Lancashire Cricket Hall of Fame, will be held in the 1864 Suite at Emirates Old Trafford on Thursday 20 February.
Inductees will receive a special Lancashire Cricket Hall of Fame cap at the dinner, with a commemorative booklet produced each year to recognise the latest inductees.
Lancashire Cricket Members can nominate players which will be taken into consideration, with a final decision being made by the Board.
To be inducted into the Hall of Fame, players must be retired and not under current employment with the Club.
The following seven players have been named as the inaugural inductees into the Lancashire Cricket Hall of Fame: A N Hornby, Cyril Washbrook, Brian Statham, Jack Bond, Farokh Engineer, Sir Clive Lloyd CBE and Jack Simmons.
Further inductees will be selected each year, and all those honoured will be displayed in the new museum area at Emirates Old Trafford – which forms part of the stadium's upcoming redevelopment.
Warren Hegg, Head of Cricket Business for Lancashire Cricket, said: “We are thrilled to launch the Lancashire Cricket Hall of Fame, something which will allow us to preserve and promote the heritage of our great club.
“The Hall of Fame will see us pay tribute to players that have given so much to the club in years gone by, as we relive past glories and celebrate those who engineered some of the greatest moments in Red Rose folklore.
“It’s sure to be a fantastic evening at Emirates Old Trafford in February, when we induct seven legends into the inaugural Lancashire Cricket Hall of Fame.”
