Former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff says he wants to win trophies after coming out of retirement to play for Lancashire in the T20 Blast.

Flintoff made his comeback in July after quitting in 2010 through injury.

The 36-year-old took three wickets in his second game against Leicestershire as Lightning became the first side to secure a place in the quarter-finals.

"It wasn't about getting in the team for a nostalgic return, I want to win trophies," he told BBC Radio 5 live.

"One of the things I wanted to do when I was 31, after an England career, was to come back to Lancashire and win things.

"I've been given this gift now and just playing isn't enough, I want to win things with Lancashire first and foremost."

Flintoff, who played in 79 Tests for England, admitted to being nervous on his comeback, particularly after being hit for successive boundaries from his first two deliveries when he bowled.

But he said he was enjoying the opportunity to be able to play cricket again.

"Apart from getting hit by complete strangers over my head for six every game I'm really enjoying it," he said.

"There's been a few nerves before the games but once I get out in the middle, I feel this is where I feel comfortable."
