Lancashire County Cricket Club was formed 149 years ago today when 13 clubs met in Manchester to form a County Club.

The leading members of the Manchester Cricket Club (who had moved to Old Trafford in 1857) organised a meeting at the Queen's Hotel in Manchester for the purpose of forming a County club.

The 13 clubs were: Accrington, Ashton, Blackburn, Broughton, Huyton, Liverpool, Longsight, Manchester, Northern CC (Crosby), Oldham, Western CC (a Manchester CC off-shoot), Whalley, Wigan.
