Lancashire have announced that they will play One-Day pre-season friendlies against Northamptonshire and Durham in early April.
The LV County Championship begins on 9th April but with Lancashire not involved in the opening round of matches, they will travel to Northamptonshire on 7th April before a double-header against Durham on the 8th and 9th April at Old Trafford.
Lancashire's Championship bid gets underway on 15th April when they play Warwickshire at Old Trafford.
Lancashire will conclude their pre-season at home although it was announced earlier this month that Surrey and Sussex will compete in the 2010 Pro ARCH Trophy in the United Arab Emirates where they will take on a UAE XI and a team representing Indian Premier League franchise Kings XI Punjab.
