David Hodgkiss, who has served Lancashire County Cricket Club in various positions for close to two decades, has been appointed as the new Chairman of the County set-up on Tuesday (April 25). He succeeds Michael Cairns, who stepped down from his position at Lancashire’s Annual General Meeting.
“I am proud to follow Michael Cairns OBE as Chairman. Michael has played an integral role in getting us to where we are today, and I have admired the strength and character, and shared goals that are in place across the Board in recent years,” he added.
The club has gone through a phase of massive transition in the last decade, especially in relation to the redevelopment of Emirates Old Trafford ground. “The last 10 years have seen immense change at the Club,” noted Hodgkiss.
“It has formed the foundations in making Lancashire a self-sustainable organisation that has cricket at the heart of what we do and all of our decisions, yet at the same time, we are able to continually develop and grow the commercial side of the business.
