The Lancashire Cricket Board (LCB) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with their accredited ECB Premier League, the Med Imaging Liverpool and District Cricket Competition (L&DCC).

To aid the overall development of cricket in the region and to enable more people playing cricket more frequently in teams, the LCB and the L&DCC, known locally as the Liverpool Competition, has agreed this MoU which sets out the framework for the development of recreational cricket in the league covering the period October 2013 to September 2017. This is also part of a requirement from the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to have an agreement between an accredited Premier League and the County Cricket Board.

The MoU features an agreed joint action plan between the two organisations, ensures insight led planning and provides for continual assessment of the Premier League's performance. Both the LCB and the Liverpool Competition will be working together on the National Cricket Playing Survey, sharing good practice from the League, with other leagues and ensuring adults are retained via a quality offer to drive the Lancashire's Cricket Outcomes.

Bob Hinchliffe, LCB Chairman, said: "This is an important step for the LCB as we aim to work more closely with the Premier League to go along with our current strategy of engaging with all Leagues in the County. The Liverpool Competition are fully committed to the Board's objectives and we in turn, will continue to wholeheartedly support them."

Eric Hadfield, L&DCC President, added: "We are delighted to sign the MOU with the LCB. They have been extremely supportive in our efforts and we look forward to maintaining our high standards and continuing to improve and develop cricket across our League."
