Ex-Lancashire star Luke Sutton calls it a day

First published in Lancashire CCC

Derbyshire captain Luke Sutton has announced his retirement with immediate effect.

The 35-year-old, who also played for Somerset and Lancashire, made a total of 176 first-class appearances; with a best innings of 151 not out against Yorkshire in 2006.

However Sutton suffered from depression during the 2011 campaign – and although he is ‘positive’ about his future, he has decided the time is right to quit.

Sutton, who is the co-founder and director of sports agency Activate Sport, said: “I have been aware for some time that I have problems with certain aspects of my mental health. I’ve had a brilliant time over my 14 years in the game, and a number of other important reasons have led me to decide to retire.”
