Scholes and Flintoff back development plans

Scholes and Flintoff back development plans

Two of the North West's biggest sporting stars have pledged their support to Lancashire County Cricket Club's redevelopment plans – taking the number of pledges received so far beyond 1000.

Paul Scholes, who regularly takes his sons to watch cricket at Old Trafford, pledged his support this weekend at  He was joined by cricket legend Freddie Flintoff in backing the club’s planning application, both leaving video messages of support on the campaign website.

In support of the development, Manchester United star Paul Scholes said:  “Old Trafford cricket ground has staged some of sports most memorable moments and without this redevelopment, there will be no more history made at this famous ground.  I’ve been coming to watch cricket at Old Trafford since I was a boy and it would be a tragedy for the people of Manchester and the North West if international cricket was never to return. 

Manchester is known worldwide for its sporting excellence and it’s important everything is done to keep international cricket in this city for future generations to enjoy.  Two Old Traffords are better than one – help create history and pledge your support today.”

Lancashire County Cricket Club and its partners have submitted plans to Trafford Council for the re-development of Old Trafford cricket ground and the surrounding area.  If approved, the development will significantly boost the Club’s prospects of bringing the Ashes back to Old Trafford and generate huge economic benefits for the area.
