Former King William’s College cricket coach Jack Bond is one of the inaugural inductees into the Lancashire Cricket Hall of Fame.

The former county skipper moved to the island in the 1970s at the end of a highly-successful professional career.

Bond was captain of Lancashire between 1968 and 1972 and led them to five one-day trophies, including three successive Gillette Cup wins at Lords.

Also in the team at the time was West Indies skipper Clive Lloyd, now Sir Clive, who is also in the initial seven inductees to the Hall of Fame along with A. N. Hornby, Cyril Washbrook, Brian Statham, Farokh Engineer and Jack Simmons.

A celebratory dinner to mark the occasion took place at Old Trafford cricket ground last Thursday.

Jack Bond died last July at the age of 87. During his time in the island, he also led a KWC team to the top of the local table tennis leagues and won the island singles championship himself.

He returned to Lancashire to manage the county in 1980 and also became an England selector.
