Bumble on the board
David 'Bumble' Lloyd, the former England player and coach turned popular commentator, also played for Accrington football club before his cricket career took off and has now been made a member of the board.
"I am honoured to be a part of the ongoing success of the club. No matter where I am or what I am doing, my links with Accrington have never waned," Lloyd said. "I was proud to become a shareholder last year and now look forward to assisting the board in its efforts to create a well-run, community-based football club we can all be proud of."
We now wait with interest for updates on Twitter along with the usual news about 'Vipers' and the 'Brigadier.'
