Haseeb Hameed wins Lancashire Player of the Year
Haseeb Hameed topped off a dream first full season in professional cricket after winning the Lancashire Player of the Year last Thursday in The Point at Emirates Old Trafford.
The nineteen year-old scored nearly 1,200 runs for the Red Rose this summer, before getting called up for England's Test Tour of Bangladesh, as well as becoming the youngest Lancashire played to be capped since the war.
Liam Livingstone won the Young Player of the Year after a terrific season in all formats, including his maiden First Class century against Somerset, whilst Alviro Petersen won the One-Day Player of the Year.
Kyle Jarvis won the Championship Player of the Year for the second successive year after taking 50 wickets in the Specsavers County Championship and Rob Jones won the Champagne Moment of the Year for his century celebration against Middlesex at Emirates Old Trafford.
Academy player Emma Lamb won the Lancashire Thunder Player of the Tournament in the inaugural Kia Super League this summer. Meanwhile, Natalie Brown, Sophie Ecclestone and Emma Lamb won awards as the LCB Women won the Royal London County Championship Division Two trophy.
An excess of £15,000 was raised on the night was to support the community projects, programmes and events delivered by the LCCC Foundation. Heart Valve Voice, the UKs charity for heart valve disease and the LCCC Foundation’s charity partner generously sponsored the event.
Sandy Mitchell, LCCC Foundation Director said “It was fantastic to see so many people at this prestigious event celebrating the best that Lancashire cricket has to offer as well as supporting the great community work developed and delivered by the LCCC Foundation. The funds raised on the night will help make a real difference to the lives of the young people, schools and community groups we work with.”
