All-rounder Glen Chapple is to stay on as Lancashire captain and continue in the role for his third season, the club have confirmed.

Chapple succeeded Stuart Law as captain in 2009 and last year took 52 Championship wickets and scored 403 runs before being named as the Club's Player Of The Year.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my two years as club captain and I am delighted to continue the responsibility into 2011," Chapple, who joined Lancashire in 1992, said.

“We have a great set of lads at the Club and we will continue to work hard to achieve our goals.”

Head Coach, Peter Moores, added: “Over the past two seasons, Glen has grown into the role of Captain and has shown that the demands of the job have enhanced his performances with both bat and ball.

“He is highly respected by both players and coaches alike and his contributions, on and off the field, have been outstanding.

"His commitment and passion for the Club and the game remain total and his performances on the pitch continue to inspire those around him.”
