LANCASHIRE'S Steven Croft has penned a new deal to stay at Old Trafford.

The all-rounder captained the Red Rose to T20 Blast glory this summer and also played his part in the club securing promotion to the County Championship Division One.

Croft told Lancashire's website: “I’m very proud and delighted to have signed a new contract with the Club I love.

“I want to help us win more trophies. We want to be the first club to defend the NatWest T20 Blast and challenge back in the top division of the LV= County Championship.

“It’s a really exciting time to be part of this Club and it’s great to see the talent in the changing room, particularly with some of the younger guys signing new contracts as well.”

Lancashire's Cricket Director and Head Coach Ashley Giles said: “Crofty has done a terrific job in leading the team on the field.

"He’s led by example and his performances have been outstanding, especially in the T20 Blast.”
