The Lancashire Cricket Foundation is inviting you to lunch with Red Rose legend, Jack Simmons MBE.
A late arrival in county cricket at the age of 28, Simmons went on to enjoy a 20 year career in which he was an integral part of the Lancashire side. He was part of the highly successful side that won the Gillette Cup, the premier one-day competition in England, for three years in a row from 1970 to 1972.
In first class cricket, Simmons reliably contributed more than 500 runs and 50 wickets in most seasons in his career and at the age of 47, he took 63 wickets in the 1988 season. He was named Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1985. After half a dozen matches in the 1989 season, Simmons retired. He went on to become Chairman of Lancashire Cricket Club and also the Chairman of Cricket for the England and Wales Cricket Board.
The event will take place within The Point during the second day of the Specsavers County Championship against Hampshire at Emirates Old Trafford on Tuesday 26 June.

- Two-course lunch (served at 1pm)
