Lancashire have reappointed Warren Hegg as their captain for the 2004 season. Hegg, 35, made his debut for Lancashire in 1986, and has skippered them for the last two years. In 2003 Lancashire finished as runners-up in the County Championship, and won the Second Division of the one-day National League.

Next year Hegg, who kept wicket for England in two Tests in Australia in 1998-99, will lead a team bolstered by the recruitment of the England allrounder Dominic Cork from Derbyshire. Hegg said today: "I'm thrilled that the club have decided to award me the captaincy again. It's a huge honour to lead the team and I'm looking forward to a successful season next year."
