Chapple Reappointed As Captain

Glen Chapple will continue as captain of Lancashire County Cricket Club for a third year.

The fast bowler, who joined the Club in 1992, took over the role from Stuart Law in 2009. Last season he took 52 Championship wickets at an average of 19.10 and scored 403 runs. He also picked up the Club's Player of the Year Award.

He said: "I have thoroughly enjoyed my two years as club captain and I am delighted to continue the responsibility into 2011. We have a great set of lads at the Club and we will continue to work hard to achieve our goals."

Head Coach, Peter Moores, added: "Over the past two seasons, Glen has grown into the role of Captain and has shown that the demands of the job have enhanced his performances with both bat and ball.

"He is highly respected by both players and coaches alike and his contributions, on and off the field, have been outstanding. His commitment and passion for the Club and the game remain total and his performances on the pitch continue to inspire those around him."
