Bolton batsman Josh Bohannon has been named Lancashire’s Men’s Player of the Year at the club’s end-of-season awards night.

The 26-year-old also picked up the club award for County Championship Player of the Year after a stellar campaign that saw him end as Division One’s leading runs scorer.

The leading run-scorer in the top flight - and second-highest in the County Championship only below Alex Lees at Durham - Bohannon hit four hundreds for Lancashire, scoring 175 at the start of September against Northamptonshire - the 10th-highest individual score in the division - before signing off the season with 113 and an unbeaten 68 against Kent.

In total in Division One in 2023, In 14 matches, the former Farnworth Social Circle star scored a total of 1,257 runs, including four centuries and five fifties, and had a batting average of 59.85.

While Bohannon has enjoyed a successful year at Emirates Old Trafford, a fellow Boltonian is leaving for pastures new at Kent.

And spinner Matt Parkinson hopes it will be a ‘reset’ for his career in Canterbury.

The former Bolton School pupil and Heaton star told Kent Online: “I think it’s a reset in all walks of life really.

“It’s 290 miles from my house, a fresh start. I’m 26-years-old and if I didn’t do it now then I don’t think I would have done it. When I knew Kent were interested it was a no-brainer.

“For me at the stage I am at, it’s like a full life reset. I want to get down to Canterbury, miles away from friends and family. I’m looking forward to basing myself in Kent and playing for Kent for the next three years.”
