Stuart Law To Have Old Trafford Stand Named After Him

Lancashire Vice Captain Stuart Law is soon to join the greats of the game in having a Stand named after him.

Damien Mullins the President of Queensland Cricket has written to Stuart to ask his permission to name a Stand in his honour; recognising his outstanding achievements as Queensland Captain. This Stand will be at the true home of Queensland Cricket, “Allan Border Field” which also happens to be the base of the Australian Cricket Academy.

Despite being limited to just one Test and 54 one-day internationals for Australia, Stuart established himself as the most successful domestic cricket captain in Australian history, leading Queensland to Shield and Pura Cup wins in 1994-95, 1996-97, 1999-2000, 2000-2001 and 2001-2002, and one-day titles in 1995-96 and 1997-98. In 2001-2002, he overtook Sam Trimble to become Queensland's greatest ever run-maker.

Currently in his 6th season with Lancashire, the club awarded Stuart with a Benefit Season in 2007 and in January, he received an OAM (Order of Australia) for service to cricket as a state, national and international player.

The “Stuart Law Stand” will be officially unveiled in a ceremony at Allan Border Field on the 2nd November, 2007.

2007 has truly been an amazing year for an exceptional Cricketer.
