Lancashire Cricket is delighted to announce the appointment of John Abrahams onto its Board of Directors.
Abrahams, who was elected on to the Board during last week’s Annual General Meeting at Emirates Old Trafford, is a Red Rose stalwart and represented Lancashire Cricket as a player for 17 years from 1972 including a spell as Club Captain in 1984/85.
He played 251 First-Class matches in a Lancashire shirt, scoring 9,980 runs with 52 half-centuries and 14 centuries along the way. He was awarded his county cap in 1982 and a Testimonial year in 1988.
Since retiring as a player, Abrahams has worked with the England and Wales Cricket Board as a scout and more recently as Team Manager of the England U19s, and is now Director of Cricket at Shropshire County Cricket Club.
Andy Anson, Chair of Lancashire Cricket, said: “Firstly, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to John onto the Club’s Board.
“His vast knowledge, experience and passion for the game of cricket will be of great benefit to the Club as we look to progress both on and off the field in the coming years.
“I am delighted that John has agreed to serve on the Board as we continue to improve our standing in the wider community that we represent.”
John Abrahams added: “It is a huge honour for me to be elected on to the Lancashire Cricket Board.
“I would like to thank the Chair, Andy Anson, and my fellow Board Members for this opportunity and look forward to working with them to continue moving Lancashire Cricket forwards in the right direction.
“This Club is extremely close to my heart, and I will do my upmost to best represent the views of players both past and present, Members and the entire Lancashire Cricket community.”
