Chapple Seals New Deal As Chilton Stands Down
Chapple made his county championship debut in 1992 and made his England one-day international debut in 2006 against Ireland.
Chilton, who has captained the county for three years, has decided to step down from his position.
After narrowly missing out on guiding Lancashire to county championship glory, the 31-year-old opening batsman said:
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the past three seasons and it has been an honour to have captained my home county.
“This has been a very difficult decision for me, but I realise my form hasn’t been what it should – and feel that in the best interests of the club and myself, I should step down as captain.”
A decision on his successor should be made in November.
