Lancashire sign ten

Lancashire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that ten (10) of the county’s best young talent have committed their futures to the Club.

As part of an ongoing process, Cricket Manager Mike Watkinson recently entered into contract talks with Lancashire's uncapped players.  As a result, ten players have agreed new contracts or contract extensions.

Another aspect that will please Red Rose supporters is that all ten are products of the successful Lancashire Development Programme, with no less than seven coming through the Club's Academy which was introduced back in 2002.

On completing these contract talks, Mike Watkinson says; "We have high hopes for all ten players, as they will form the backbone of our senior squad in the years ahead.

 "Despite four No Results, a number of our younger players have had opportunities in this year's Pro40 campaign.  It has been very encouraging to see the energy, talent and commitment demonstrated by these players, and it bodes well for the future of Lancashire."

Others to sign new contracts are;

Steven Croft
Gareth Cross
Kyle Hogg
Steven Mullaney
Oliver Newby
Stephen Parry
Tom Smith

The club will start contract discussions with senior squad members in due course.
