Lancashire County Cricket Club and the T20 Trophy at Gigg on Saturday
We are delighted to reveal that some of Lancashire County Cricket Club’s star players will be in attendance at Saturday’s home game v Burton Albion, proudly showing off the trophy they helped the Red Rose County win this summer.
Lancashire Lightning players Steven Croft, Karl Brown and Arron Lilley will be at Gigg Lane this coming Saturday with the T20 Trophy that they lifted following a 13 run victory over Northamptonshire Steelbacks at Edgbaston.
Steven Croft, who skippered his team to their first-ever T20 title and the Club’s first one-day trophy since 1999 said: “We are all big football fans in the dressing room and there’s a good mix of teams that we support. One thing’s for sure we are all looking forward to Saturday’s game and hopefully seeing Bury pick up the three points. We hope by bringing the trophy we can inspire the lads to get a good result on the pitch”.
Chief Operating Officer, Geoff Durbin, who spent 15 years at Emirates Old Trafford, added “It’s fantastic to have the Trophy here with us, something which frustratingly eluded the Club when I was there, so it means a lot to me personally to see the lads coming to Gigg Lane after deservedly winning the T20 Blast trophy. I’d like to extend my thanks to Lancashire County Cricket Club, and in particular to Karl, Steven and Arron for coming along today”.
We would like to give supporters the chance to see the trophy and have their photo taken with it if they wish, and it will be on show in the Club Shop between approximately 13:15 and 13:50. The Lancashire lads will be taking it out onto the pitch before kick-off too and we are sure the Bury fans will show their appreciation.
