THE County Championship is coming to Clitheroe!

Lancashire stars past and present will gather at The Grand to celebrate this season’s historic championship victory on November 10th.

Lancashire claimed their first outright Championship victory for 77 years with a dramatic final day win against Somerset at Taunton, and the sportsman’s dinner, in aid of former Lancashire captain Mark Chilton’s benefit year, has attracted a host of Red Rose stars.

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.

“I’ve decided to retire after 15 fabulous years at Old Trafford, and this will be a special night.”

Commentator John Gwynne will be the MC at the special question and answer evening – and the County Championship trophy will be on show throughout the evening.

Tickets £25, includes a two-course dinner, table of ten, £200.
