The earliest known reference to cricket being played in Lancashire

is in 1781. In 1816, the Manchester

Cricket

as a county in the same way that Sheffield

Yorkshire
and Nottinghamshire
Nottinghamshire
. On 23–25 July 1849, the Sheffield and Manchester
Manchester
clubs played each other at Hyde Park in Sheffield
Sheffield
but the fixture was called “ Yorkshire
Yorkshire
versus Lancashire”. It was the first match to involve a team using Lancashire
Lancashire
as its name and is generally reckoned to have been the first " Roses Match ". Yorkshire won by five wickets. Teams called Yorkshire, though based on the Sheffield
Sheffield
club, had been active since 1833. The Roses Match is one of cricket's oldest and most famous rivalries. In 1857, the Manchester club moved to Old Trafford , which has been the home of Lancashire cricket ever since.

HISTORY OF THE COUNTY CLUB

ORIGIN

In 1864, the leading members of the Manchester
Manchester
Cricket
Cricket
Club organised a meeting for the purpose of forming a club to represent the county; 13 clubs were represented at the meeting and, on 12 January 1864, Lancashire
Lancashire
County Cricket
Cricket
Club was created. The club was committed to playing matches in different parts of the county to "introduce ... cricket into every part of Lancashire". Johnny Briggs played for Lancashire
Lancashire
between 1879 and 1900 and is the only player to have scored 10,000 runs and taken 1,000 wickets for the club in First-class cricket.

The new club’s first county match was played in 1865 at Old Trafford against Middlesex ; Lancashire
Lancashire
won the match by 62 runs , although Middlesex bowler V. E. Walker took all ten wickets in Lancashire’s second innings. The early Lancashire
Lancashire
side was reliant upon amateurs, which led to problems; although they were happy to play at Old Trafford, they were less willing to travel to away fixtures. During the early 1870s, the team was dominated by Monkey Hornby ’s batting. The team’s standard of cricket improved with the arrival of two professional players, Dick Barlow and Alex Watson . The impact of Barlow and Hornby was such that their batting partnership was immortalised in the poem At Lord’s by Francis Thompson . The team was further enhanced by A. G. Steel – an amateur considered second only to W. G. Grace as the country’s best all rounder – Johnny Briggs – a professional from Sutton-in-Ashfield and the only player to score 10,000 runs and take 1,000 wickets for Lancashire
Lancashire
– and wicket-keeper Dick Pilling – who in 1891 was rated by Wisden as the second-best wicket-keeper in the world behind Jack Blackham . As Lancashire’s consistency improved, so did their support: in 1878, 28,000 over three days watched Lancashire
Lancashire
play Gloucestershire .

EARLY SUCCESSES

The club’s first success came in 1879, when the majority of the cricket press – except for Wisden – agreed that Lancashire
Lancashire
and Nottinghamshire
Nottinghamshire
were joint champions. Lancashire
Lancashire
was the champion county in 1881 and again shared the title with Nottinghamshire
Nottinghamshire
in 1882.

Dick Barlow carried his bat for just 5 not out in Lancashire’s total of 69 in two and a half hours against Nottinghamshire
Nottinghamshire
on a treacherous, rain-affected Trent Bridge pitch in July 1882. Barlow and his longtime opening partner Hornby are the opening batsmen immortalised in the famous poem by Francis Thompson . In 1884, Old Trafford became the second ground, after The Oval , to stage a Test match in England. Though it rained on the first day, 12,000 spectators attended on the second; the match between England
England
and Australia resulted in a draw.

Controversy emerged during the 1880s; Kent and Nottinghamshire objected to the bowling actions of John Crossland and George Nash. Nottinghamshire
Nottinghamshire
even went as far as refusing to play against Lancashire. Although the 1880s was a period of controversy and modest results for the club, it was also a time in which some club records were established. In 1885 George Kemp (later 1st Baron Rochdale) scored Lancashire’s first century in a Roses Match. In that same year Johnny Briggs and Dick Pilling set a first-class record partnership for the tenth wicket of 173 that stood until 1899 and has not been bettered by Lancashire. The club shared the title of champions with Surrey in 1889. A 1908 cigarette card of Archie MacLaren who captained the club from 1894 to 1896 and holds the record for the highest first-class score by an Englishman.

The County Championship
County Championship
was founded in 1890, and champions were decided by points rather than the press as had happened previously. Lancashire
Lancashire
was one of the eight founding teams of the championship along with Gloucestershire, Kent, Middlesex, Nottinghamshire, Surrey, Sussex and Yorkshire. The team was runner up in 1890 and 1891. Archie MacLaren was appointed captain in 1894, four years after making his debut whilst still captain of Harrow . In 1895 MacLaren made his record breaking innings of 424 against Somerset at Taunton
Taunton
; his innings remained the highest first-class score for an Englishman, was the first first-class quadruple century, and was the highest score in first-class cricket until Bill Ponsford scored 429 in February 1923. Again, Lancashire
Lancashire
was runner up in 1895, despite Arthur Mold taking 192 wickets in the season, a feat bettered only twice for the club. The current pavilion was constructed in 1895 and cost £10,000 (£1,040,000 in 2017); it replaced the earlier pavilion, dating from 1857 when Old Trafford was originally built.

Lancashire
Lancashire
won its first county championship in 1897, a productive bowling attack made up of Johnny Briggs, Willis Cuttell , Albert Hallam , and Arthur Mold took 420 wickets between them. In 1898 Lancashire
Lancashire
bought the ground and some adjoining land from the de Traffords for £24,732 (£2,480,000 in 2017). In 1902, amateur and professional players began walking onto the field side by side in a break with tradition. Lancashire
Lancashire
won its second championship title in 1904, going undefeated throughout the season; Wisden described the season as “the brightest in the history of Lancashire
Lancashire
cricket”. That season, James Hallows completed the feat of 1,000 runs and 100 wickets in the season. During the late 1900s and early 1910s, players such as Walter Brearley , Harry Dean , and Bill Huddleston were the mainstays of Lancashire
Lancashire
bowling. The club began to experience financial problems during this same period; the increased popularity of other sports was blamed for the dip in attendances. In 1914, Lancashire
Lancashire
sank to its lowest position of eleventh, whilst during World War I the pavilion was used by the Red Cross
Red Cross
and 1,800 patients were treated there.

THE GOLDEN ERA

After the war Lancashire
Lancashire
developed a very strong batting side, including Ernest Tyldesley and Johnny Tyldesley , both Test batsmen . In 1920, Lancashire
Lancashire
finished runner up and bowlers Harry Dean and Lawrence Cook took 274 wickets between them. During 1921, interest in cricket reached an all-time high, with over 250,000 people attending Old Trafford and over 4,500 members. 1922 was a year of contradictions, a strong team winning seven out of fifteen matches by an innings, but still managing to lose seven and finish 5th; that season Cec Parkin and Lawrence Cook mustered 308 wickets between them and Ernest Tyldesley scored over 2,000 runs. Lancashire’s steady progress was capped by a hat trick of championship titles between 1926 and 1928 under the captaincy of Leonard Green. In the 1926 victory, Ernest Tyldesley and Harry Makepeace each scored over 2,000 runs. In 1927, Charlie Hallows scored six centuries and the bowling attack was led by Dick Tyldesley and Ted McDonald with support from Frank Sibbles. In 1928, Frank Watson and Ernest Tyldesley scored over 2,000 runs each and George Duckworth claimed 107 victims and earned recognition as one of Wisden’s five Cricketers of the Year. At the end of the season Leonard Green decided to retire with a record of three successive championships and 42 wins against just three defeats.

Under the captaincy of Peter Eckersley , Lancashire
Lancashire
finished second in the championship in 1929 and reclaimed the title in 1930, with ten victories and no defeats that season. After four titles in five seasons, the early 1930s saw a number of retirements including McDonald and Dick Tyldesley in 1931 and Ernest Tyldesley in 1935: no Lancashire
Lancashire
batsman has matched Tyldesley’s 100 centuries in first-class cricket. Lancashire
Lancashire
won the championship outright for the last time in 1934, the same year that Len Hopwood performed the double of 1,000 runs and 100 wickets (a feat he repeated in 1935) and Cyril Washbrook began to work his way into the team. The captain, Peter Eckersley, retired in 1935 to become an MP. The later half of the 1930s was a period of rebuilding up until the war, with the opening partnership of Cyril Washbrook and Eddie Paynter the highlight. Paynter scored 322 in five hours for Lancashire
Lancashire
against Sussex in 1937 having come down on the sleeper train from the victorious Old Trafford Test against New Zealand. He put on 268 in 155 minutes with Cyril Washbrook and celebrated his innings that evening at Brighton's Ice Palace.

POST-WAR

When play began in 1946, after World War II
World War II
, things started badly for Lancashire
Lancashire
when the captain and veteran player, Jack Iddon , was killed in a car accident just before the start of the season. Jack Fallows stood in as captain for the season. His successor, Ken Cranston , was an unusual choice as he had no prior first-class experience; despite this his captaincy was not unsuccessful as Lancashire
Lancashire
finished third and fifth during his two years in charge. In 1947 Cyril Washbrook and Winston Place both scored over 2,500 runs and scored 19 centuries between them. Washbrook’s benefit took place in August 1948 and was watched by 50,000 people; he received £14,000 (£460,000 in 2017), beating the previous record by over £10,000. Despite finishing 11th in 1949, in 1950 – under the captaincy of Nigel Howard Lancashire
Lancashire
shared the county championship with Surrey , winning 16 matches; Roy Tattersall and Malcolm Hilton claimed nearly 300 wickets between them. The 1950 season marked the emergence of Brian Statham . In the following three seasons, Lancashire
Lancashire
finished third each time.

With the retirement of Nigel Howard in 1954, Lancashire
Lancashire
appointed its first professional captain, Cyril Washbrook, who would captain the club for the next six years. In 1954 Geoff Pullar , Ken Grieves and Alan Wharton all scored over 2,000 runs, whilst Brian Statham, Ken Higgs and Tommy Greenhough all took over 100 wickets; despite this, Lancashire
Lancashire
managed to finish only 5th. Lancashire
Lancashire
came close to reclaiming the county championship in 1960 under a new captain, Bob Barber . Five batsmen scored more than 1,000 runs in the season, and Statham, Higgs and Greenhough all took over 100 wickets; Lancashire finished runner up due to a poor run of form towards the end of the season: losing four and drawing two of the last six matches after topping the table in August. The following year, however, Lancashire dropped to 13th, due in part to Barber’s inexperience and Statham’s and Geoff Pullar’s England
England
commitments. Things declined further in 1962, under the leadership of Joe Blackledge , who had had no previous first-class experience, as Lancashire
Lancashire
dropped to second last, winning only two matches. After a period of unrest, Brian Statham was appointed captain between 1965 and 1967 and Lancashire’s results improved. Statham retired in 1968 with 1,816 first-class wickets, a record for the club.

LIMITED-OVER SUCCESS

Jack Bond became Lancashire
Lancashire
captain in 1968 and remained in the position until 1972. During his tenure, Lancashire
Lancashire
performed well in the championship, finishing third in 1970 and 1971. His biggest triumph as captain was the five one day trophies he secured during his five-year captaincy. Farokh Engineer joined Lancashire
Lancashire
in 1968, and Clive Lloyd joined in 1969; together Lloyd and Engineer helped establish Lancashire
Lancashire
as one of the best one day sides in England. The silverware included a hat-trick of Gillette Cups (1970–72) and the Sunday League twice in successive seasons (1969–1970). Mainstays of the successful one day side included Clive Lloyd, David Lloyd , Barry Wood , Harry Pilling , Frank Hayes , Peter Lever , Ken Shuttleworth , David Hughes and Jack Simmons . In the Gillette Cup semi-final against Gloucestershire in 1971, David Hughes walked to the crease at 8.45pm and hit 24 from an over in near darkness to win the match. David Lloyd was captain from 1973 to 1977 and secured Lancashire’s fourth Gillette Cup in 1975, and coming runners up in 1974 and 1976. However, in the late 1970s, the team that had been so dominant in the one day format began to break up. Despite boasting international players such as Lloyd and Engineer, Lancashire’s first-class performances never matched the success of the limited overs team.

It wasn’t until 1984, under the captaincy of John Abrahams , that the club won more silverware, this time in the Benson & Hedges Cup. Despite a resurgence in limited overs matches, Lancashire
Lancashire
finished in the bottom six of the county championship. After suffering defeat in the final of the 1986 Nat West Trophy, David Hughes was appointed captain. Towards the end of the 1980s, Lancashire’s side began to develop, with Graeme Fowler and Gehan Mendis building a productive opening partnership, while David Hughes and Neil Fairbrother provided support in the middle order. The bowlers were led by Patrick Patterson and Paul Allott with support from David Hughes, Mike Watkinson and Jack Simmons. In 1987 after eleven successive years in the bottom six, Lancashire
Lancashire
finished second in the championship, their highest position in 27 years. Mike Atherton
Mike Atherton
made his Lancashire
Lancashire
debut in 1987 – scoring 600 runs in the second half of the season – and Wasim Akram first played for the team in 1988. Lancashire
Lancashire
defeated Worcestershire in the final of the Refuge Cup in 1988. The following year the club won the Sunday League on the last day of the season in 1989 and finished fourth in the championship. At the age of 48, in 1989 Jack Simmons retired after having taken 985 first-class wickets for the county.

In 1990, Lancashire
Lancashire
won both the Nat West Trophy and Benson Lancashire
Lancashire
narrowly missed out on a treble, finishing runners-up in the Sunday League. Lancashire's consistency continued, and the team finished second in the Sunday League and B&H Cup. Paul Allott and Graeme Fowler were released at the end of the 1992 season. The team lost the B&H final to Derbyshire in 1993. In 1994, young bowlers Peter Martin and Glen Chapple took 50 wickets each. The batting too looked promising, with John Crawley scoring two double centuries and Jason Gallian steadily improving. In 1995, Lancashire
Lancashire
again won the Benson & Hedges Cup. In 1996, Lancashire
Lancashire
again won the double of the NatWest Trophy and Benson & Hedges Cup. In 1998, with Wasim Akram
Wasim Akram
as captain, Lancashire
Lancashire
won the NatWest Trophy and Axa League, and finished second in the championship despite losing only five games in all competitions throughout the season. Apart from the National League second division title in 2003, this was the last time Lancashire
Lancashire
won a trophy. 1999 was an eventful year for Lancashire
Lancashire
with the debut of Muttiah Muralitharan , the departure of coach Dav Whatmore after just two years with the club and again the team finished second in the championship and won the National League.

NEW CENTURY

The team that had been so successful in the 1990s began to break up at the start of the 2000s. Since winning their last trophy in 1998, the team has lost eight semi-finals and two finals. In 2008 Lancashire
Lancashire
managed to finish second in the County Championship. The competition was divided into two divisions for the 2000 season, with Lancashire
Lancashire
in the first division. Lancashire's one day form began to fluctuate in 2000, losing to Gloucestershire in the semi-finals of both the B the most notable additions to the squad were Stuart Law and David Byas – the Yorkshire
Yorkshire
captain of the previous season. After a quiet 2001 season – finishing mid-table in the county championship and again failing to secure promotion in the National League – 2002 was far more encouraging. Mike Watkinson was appointed cricket manager, and Stuart Law and Alec Swann both scored over 1,000 first-class runs and Peter Martin and Glen Chapple both took more than 50 wickets; the find of the season was that of James Anderson , who burst onto the scene with 50 wickets in the second half of the season, earning him a promotion to the England
England
side. At the end of the season, Lancashire
Lancashire
stalwarts Neil Fairbrother and Graham Lloyd retired.

2003 was a promising year, and Lancashire
Lancashire
were genuine contenders for the county championship. Mark Chilton , Carl Hooper and Mal Loye all scored over 1,000 runs and Stuart Law was player of the year with 1,820 runs. Altogether, 28 championship centuries were scored for Lancashire, the second highest total in a season for the club. Gary Keedy was lead wicket taker with 60 wickets, supported by Martin and Chapple who took 41 and 49 respectively. They were promoted from the second division of the National League, lost in the semi-final of the C Chilton was the club's first Yorkshire-born captain. Between 1864 and 2004, Lancashire
Lancashire
played 2,790 matches, winning 1,034, losing 583, drawing 1,170, with three tied matches. In this period, no other team had drawn more matches. The team's percentage of wins was 37.06%, third behind Yorkshire

In recent years, the club has considered moving to a new ground, with sites in east Manchester

and Wigan

discussed, but following a long period of discussions and rumours the club decided to remain at Old Trafford, which it hopes to redevelop. The need for an improved ground was highlighted when Old Trafford lost out to Cardiff as a venue for the 2009 Ashes, much to the disappointment of cricket fans in the region. A financial plan is awaited for the redevelopment, costed at £30 million. Lancashire

FINANCES

Lancashire
Lancashire
County Cricket
Cricket
Club has a record of strong finances which has been attributed to several factors including its diverse facilities and having the largest membership in the country. The Old Trafford Lodge is a hotel which is part of the ground and the ground has been used for conference facilities and has staged music concerts. Another source of income is opening the ground's car park during Manchester United F.C. 's home matches. Between 2004 and 2006, the club made record profits, each year getting progressively better and in 2006 recorded a profit of £747,370. While in 2009 more than half of the 18 counties were in profit, 15 in 2010 experienced financial losses, Lancashire
Lancashire
included. The total losses of the 18 counties amounted to over £9 million. Lancashire
Lancashire
suffered losses of £2.1 million for 2010, primarily because of the club's investment in rebuilding Old Trafford, particularly the construction of The Point. The absence of Test cricket

and legal action related to the ground's redevelopment also contributed to the financial loss.
