Red Rose will do without overseas star
Cricket director Mike Watkinson is still expecting Lancashire to go into the new county season without an overseas star.
The club’s long wrangle over their multi-million pound redevelopment of Old Trafford has left the purse for new talent virtually empty due to them having had to spend more money than expected.
Watkinson said: “My understanding of the situation is that we now have the confidence that we have got a long-term strategy in place. We will have the funds available to help us achieve that.
“But it doesn’t mean that our cash-flow situation is any easier in the short-term.”
Meanwhile, Lancashire have revealed that the new ends at Old Trafford will be called the Pavilion End and the Statham End. The square is now on a north-south axis.
