@14As a Lancashire fan I did indeed smile when Yorkshire were relegated in the year we were champions. However, it is good to be back in Division One - where both Lancs and Yorks belong. For the first time since 2011 we can look forward to proper Roses Matches, not the one day stuff.
Well Done Lanky
Well done Chappie and the boys.....Way too good for the second division!!! Now to finish the job off in Kent for an unbeaten season !! Reece will open for England in years to come. Mark my words....Kerrigan...stage fright against the Aussies, nothing more!!! Another solid season for him in the top division will see England call him up again !! Up the Lanky !!
Genuine congratulations to "the enemy", as a Yorks fan I obviously did smile when Lancs got relegated last year (as I'm sure they did when we were relegated) but seriously it's good to see them back in CC 1 and I'm looking forward to some proper Roses matches next season as opposed to the somewhat half arsed YB 40, T 20 ones (its also good for both clubs' finances which is always welcome).
Well done the red rose ...... strengthen next year and challenge for the Div 1 title again to show 2011 wasnt just a flash in the pan ..
@ 8.Peter Lanky "Does this mean that you sincerely believe that coming 9th would have been better?"No, of course not - and I'm delighted that that ignominy goes to £urrey! I was just pointing out that the tag "Champions" seems a bit inflated. for coming top of D2. No offence intended.
well done boys, we love you Lancy we do....
@6 - bit harsh considering that was as high as they could go ! I suppose they had to be relegated to win a trophy they did not have in their cabinate. Well done Lancs, bounced back well, lets be ready for the challenge next season.
Well done lads, some good young prospects mixed with excellent seasonen pros. Champions next year when Kerrigan becomes leading wicket taker and England are begging for him to come back.
"6. gillersCongrats to Lancs but I think some of the "Champions" comments on here are a bit OTT for a team effectively coming 10th in the County Championship."Does this mean that you sincerely believe that coming 9th would have been better?
Wonderful all season from Lancashire. Brave to drop established pros such as Moore, Croft, Brown and, for the final three games, Cross however the youngsters have all stepped up. Procter has gone from strength to strength, Reece looks good and Aggers does too. Katich, Prince, Horton all wonderful - words can't describe how good Hogg, Chapple and Kerrigan have been!
Congrats to Lancs but I think some of the "Champions" comments on here are a bit OTT for a team effectively coming 10th in the County Championship.
Hurrah hurrah. Back where Lancs belong and champions too. Does it get any better? Brilliant
Next season a fine squad will also have Kyle Jarvis and the brilliant Haseeb Hameed.
A team that should not have found itself in division two in the first place, but nonetheless, Lancs have been on an entirely different level to all the other teams in the league.
Excellent. No more bowling underarm and retiring when we're 25...
Champions!!!!Well done lads - puts right last year's blemish.The team's got better as the season has progressed so hopefully we can be challenging for more success next season.
