Law agrees to new one-year contract
Stuart Law, the Lancashire batsman who had expressed doubts about playing for the club next season, has signed a new one-year contract.
“Stuart is an exceptional batsman and has just finished another great season for the club,” Mike Watkinson, Lancashire’s cricket manager said. “His experience at both a domestic and international level is invaluable, and he brings a lot to the squad both on and off the field.”
Law, 39, joined the county in 2002 and has been the club’s leading batsman with 7,141 first-class runs at an average of 58.53.
“Lancashire is one of the biggest clubs I’ve even been involved with,” Law said. “I thought that Queensland had a big fan base, but Lancashire probably has the biggest in the world and the pressure for success is immense – which makes it an even bigger privilege to play for such a passionate county.
“I’ve always wanted to play for Lancashire ever since playing League cricket for Littleborough in 1991-92, and I’m very grateful I’ve got the opportunity to continue my career at Old Trafford for at least another season.”
Law will be taking part in the Indian Cricket League (ICL) later this month before spending Christmas in Brisbane, where he can inspect the newly opened stand named in his honour at the Allan Border Field.
