Cricket: County Championship winner Mark Chilton to reveal all about Lancashire career at Hawarden

COUNTY Championship winner Mark Chilton will be at Hawarden Institute on Saturday, November 12 to tell the true story behind Lancashire’s historic triumph this summer.

The Red Rose lifted the biggest prize in domestic cricket outright for the first time since 1934.

The club did share the title with Surrey in 1950, but Chilton, a 14-year veteran of the side who helped them gain promotion from Division Two in 2005, is now able to say his benefit year was one of the most important in the history of Lancashire CC.

He will reveal the inside track on Glenn Chappell’s side at a sportsman’s evening for Hawarden Park Cricket Club.

From sharing a dressing room with Ashes legend Andrew Flintoff to life on the road as a First Class cricketer, the 35-year-old has plenty of funny stories to share about the highs and lows of his career to date.

The night starts at 7.30pm and is priced at just £10, which includes a hot pot supper. A full bar will also be open on the night.

Tickets are available from Hawarden Cricket Club’s Dave Kay on 01244 533102 with proceeds going towards the building of a new ground for the club.
