‘Lincolnshire Cricket chairman Rob Bradley (left) and Lincolnshire County Cricket Club chairman Chris Keywood are pleased to issue the following joint statement:
Lincolnshire Cricket (aka the County Cricket Board) and Lincolnshire County Cricket Club are pleased to announce that both organisations have agreed in principle to merge. Although both organisations have worked together well in the past a unitary cricket authority in Lincolnshire will ensure the best possible pathway will be in place for talented young players, the recreational game can be supported even more effectively, and the cricket community as a whole can be served as successfully as possible by a single cricket authority.
Fuller details on the merger will follow in the near future. For any enquiries at this stage please contact Rob Bradley on email@example.com or 07957 584 630 who can also provide contact details for LCCC officials if requested.’
