The Club would like to formally welcome Dame Sarah Storey as the new President of Lancashire Cricket.

She will follow in the footsteps of Sir Howard Bernstein who has reached the end of his term, after a decade of excellent service to the County in the role.

The 46 year-old – who is Britain’s most decorated Paralympian – was overwhelmingly voted in by the Club’s Members at Thursday’s Annual General Meeting at Emirates Old Trafford.

As well as competing, Sarah serves as Active Travel Commissioner for Greater Manchester and a Visiting Professor at Manchester Metropolitan University.

The Board was seeking to identify a Board member with in-depth understanding of women’s elite sport which has been a gap in the Club’s skills matrix.

Speaking of Dame Sarah’s nomination in March, Lancashire Cricket Chair, Andy Anson OBE, said: “I am delighted to confirm that Dame Sarah Storey has accepted the Board’s nomination as the Club’s new President.

“Sarah is an outstanding candidate for the Presidency. With a peerless record as Britain’s most successful Paralympian, she is an inspirational presence who has a proven track-record in high-performance elite sport and as a strategic advisor in a variety of public-facing roles.

“The Board looks forward to working together over the next two years. Having someone of Dame Sarah’s calibre and first-hand experience of high-performance elite sport on board will offer invaluable support to both our men’s and women’s squads.”
