Lamb honoured by county
Northamptonshire are victorious at Lord's
Lamb celebrates victory in the 1992 NatWest final
Northamptonshire are to honour former captain Allan Lamb by naming a room after him at their indoor cricket centre.

Lamb scored more than 20,000 first-class runs for the county and also appeared in 79 Tests and 122 one-day internationals for England.

The 47-year-old will officially open the Allan Lamb Room before next Sunday's National League game against Gloucestershire at the County Ground.

"Allan's record of achievement for Northamptonshire speaks for itself," said club chairman Simon Schanschieff.

"He is one of the greatest players ever to represent the club, a former England captain, and a man instantly recognised throughout the cricketing world."

He added: "All too often people are honoured when they're no longer around. We were keen to do something for Allan while he was still on the scene."

Lamb was a member of the team which won the 1980 B&H Cup final, scoring 72 in a six-run win over Essex, and the 1992 NatWest Trophy.

He captained the side on the latter occasion, making an unbeaten 24 as they thrashed Leicestershire by eight wickets.
