Lancashire honours


First XV prop and head coach Sam Simpson (pictured centre) was selected to start for Lancashire against Durham on 04/05/13. He played an integral part in the 40-29 win at Hartlepool, playing for 70 minutes before being forced off with injury. This is the first time an Eccles player has won representative honours at open age level in recent memory, which is representative of how far the team has come. Well done and congratulations to Sam!
