2020 LANCASHIRE CRICKET YEAR BOOK
Why did Lancashire play a home match at Hull? Why did Red Rose supporters start celebrating a Championship success in 1920? And when did Lancashire’s best-ever bowling feat take place?
The answers are in the new Lancashire Cricket Yearbook which can be obtained from the Lancashire Online Shop.
The 83rd edition of the Yearbook runs to 272 pages and is packed with match reports, scorecards and averages including a comprehensive review of our 2019 Division Two Championship title success, while renowned cricket writer Paul Edwards looks back over four glorious days at Sedbergh.
Among the features we look at how Jack Bond’s side clinched cricket’s first one-day ‘double’, including the Gillette Cup, in 1970 and recall two dramatic matches; an astonishing one-run victory at Liverpool one hundred years ago and Lancashire’s last first-class match to finish inside one day.
The 2019 World Cup was unforgettable as England triumphed at Lord’s last summer and we have a special section covering some classic moments from the six matches played at Emirates Old Trafford.
