LANCASHIRE are still revelling in their status as county champions after winning their first title in 77 years.

And Ribble Valley cricket fans get another chance to get their photograph taken with the trophy and Gary Keedy tomorrow night at Clitheroe Cricket Club.

In November, The Grand hosted a special celebration night with Gary Keedy, Mark Chilton, Tom Smith, Jack Simmons and Ian Austin, and Keedy returns to the area to take part in a question and answer session at Chatburn Road from 7-15 p.m.

The event has been arranged at short notice, with Clitheroe stepping into the breach after a similiar night fell through at another Red Rose club, and entry is free.

Spinner Keedy finished as Lancashire’s leading wicket-taker in the County Championship, taking 61 wickets to help them to the title, before the club stalwart agreed a new contract with the club.
