Preston cricket legend Andrew Flintoff made a winning comeback to help Lancashire to victory over Worcestershire.


In a long awaited return to the game Freddie took a couple of wickets in what turned out to be a one-sided T20 Blast match.

Although he didn’t get chance to bat his contribution helped Lancashire to the top of the North group league table.

A shame there was no live TV coverage but Freddie received a warm welcome back from the crowd.

He didn’t comment after the game but took to Twitter later:


Back in 2012, Freddie said in an interview that Preston is where he’d like to live and has fond memories of his early cricketing career in the city.

He said: “My dad played cricket locally on a Saturday afternoon and my mum used to take us to watch him. I started off in the pram and then played for the side – that’s how it all started.”

Flintoff also used to work on the record counter at the old Woolworths store on Fishergate.
