Lancashire staff looked the part during this year's Ashes Test after they were supplied with brand new uniforms by Manchester corporate clothing provider Corportex Apparel.

Following huge investment in the Old Trafford ground, including turning the square through 90 degrees, the build-up to the Ashes Test was complete by Lancashire making sure their staff looked the part.

In December 2012, they awarded the contract to Corprotex to provide uniforms to all 200 staff working at the ground including all areas from reception, housekeeping, maintenance, events and management.

The brief was to design a sharp and professional look for Lancashire's employees, making them instantly recognisable while reflecting the prestigious brand.

The collection comprises skirts, trousers and dresses in charcoal grey polyester, wool and Lycra fabric while bespoke ties were designed in the corporate colours.

"This was a very exciting project to work on given all the hype in Manchester surrounding the Ashes and the fact the world would be watching," Paul Smith, Managing Director at Corprotex Apparel said.

"We worked to tight deadlines, but we planned well and were able to deliver on time to 200 members of staff.   

"It was a real pleasure to partner this local but internationally recognised Club and the team here was very proud to be part of this huge sporting event."

Lancashire's Daniel Gidney added: "Corprotex has supplied the Club for around 12 years and provides a professional service as well-designed uniforms constructed in high quality materials.

"Corprotex worked hard to help us achieve our goals and our staff are delighted with the new look."
