Seven new names enter Lancashire Cricket’s Hall of Fame
Second Hall of Fame Dinner takes place at Emirates Old Trafford on Thursday evening
It was another historic evening in the 1864 Suite at Emirates Old Trafford as seven former Lancashire players became the second group of inductees into the Red Rose’s Hall of Fame.
Former players David Hughes, Ken Shuttleworth, Peter Lever, J.T Tyldesley, Eddie Paynter, A.C MacLaren and Johnny Briggs all entered the Emirates Old Trafford Hall of Fame.
Hosted by former Lancashire and England fast bowler Paul Allott, it was an emotionally charged evening as the living former players – and families of those no longer with us – celebrated their achievements with the Red Rose and accepted their commemorative Hall of Fame Cap.
Hughes, Shuttleworth and Lever then joined Allott on stage for a Q&A session to recall their fondest moments and memories from their time playing for Lancashire Cricket.
Last year, A N Hornby, Cyril Washbrook, Brian Statham, Jack Bond, Farokh Engineer, Sir Clive Lloyd and Jack Simmons became the first names to be honoured at the now annual exclusive dinner.
Lloyd and Simmons were once again in attendance and received caps on behalf of MacLaren and Briggs and there are now 14 names in the Lancashire Cricket Hall of Fame.
