Prince returns to Old Trafford
9:08am Thursday 28th March 2013 in Sport
ASHWELL Prince has rejoined Lancashire for a fourth spell at Old Trafford.
The 35-year-old left-hander has penned a two-year deal subject to successful visa and registration applications, and will be available for all three competitions as the Red Rose aim to bounce back to Division One of the County Championship and win silverware in the Yorkshire Bank 40 and the Friends Life t20 competitions.
"I'm delighted to announce that I will be returning to Lancashire for the next two seasons, ' said Prince.
‘I was part of the team that went down last season and I want to be part of the team that is going to fight our way back to where we belong. I look forward to joining up with the squad soon."
The South African was first recruited by Lancashire in 2009 as cover for India's VVS Laxman, and averaged 62 from five first-class appearances.
He returned for a spell at the start of the following summer and was awarded his county cap.
In 2012 he was available for the entire season and hit over 1,000 runs at an average of just under 44 with the bat in first-class cricket.
