LANCASHIRE stars past and present will celebrate this season’s historic championship victory at Clitheroe’s Grand Theatre in November.

Lancashire claimed their first outright Championship victory for 77 years last month, and the sportman’s dinner, in aid of former Lancashire captain Mark Chilton’s benefit year, has attracted a host of top names.

Chilton, skipper Glen Chapple and Gary Keedy, who were all part of last season’s Lancashire squad, will be accompanied by Old Trafford favourites Warren Hegg, Ian Austin and Jack Simmons.

“It was an amazing season, one I will remember for the rest of my life,” said Chilton.

“We are all looking forward to coming to The Grand – it should be a special night to remember.”

Sky TV commentator John Gwynne will be the MC at the special question and answer evening. The event will be held on Thursday, November 10th. Tickets £25, includes two course dinner. Table of ten, £200. Contact 07790 384709 or The Grand box office 01200 421599 for more information.
