    Lancashire in need of a new manager!

    Guys - I'll post my team for this week's game and then hand over the reins to somebody else before the business end of the season starts.
    My heart is no longer in WCC, so it's not fair to continue.
    Thanks Blewy, Simon, Bugs and all other managers I've had dealings with. WCC is a fantastic thing and it has been a pleasure to be involved.
    You'll still see me around on the ICC forum with my stories and on the TCM Revolution forum with my Crystal Palace story.
    Thanks for everything and all the best to whoever takes over Lancashire!

    Graham.

    wow theres a shock! sorry to see you go youve been a great manager for over 3 years and have been a great help to blewy and myself.

    added to that this position is now open to current managers, please email your application to for this high profile club to glendad01@optusnet.com.au and ill get back to you ASAP. An academy manager will be given a side for the start of 4d round 8.

    Shocked to see you go Graham! Particularly considering how well Lancs have done this season. You've been a great manager, and I can't forget both of the 4D Div 1 and Div 2 and battles.

    Best of luck for the future mate!

    P.S: Can you forfeit this week's game?

    A great servant of WCC, and a shame to see you go.

    Sad to see you go mate. However a wise decision if your heart not in it, and you have given the new manager plenty of time to get their team in order for next season.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    :O

    Well i didn't see this coming...

    Graham, i will say on behalf of myself and everyone in WCC a HUGE thankyou...

    In 3 years i can not recall you missing 1 deadline.. You have been a very big part of WCC from the outset and we will have a tough job finding someone who is half as reliable as you have been....

    You were a very big help on the board for the good part of 2 years and have helped develop what WCC is today...

    Thankyou for your time and efforts and i hope you pop in now and again to keep an eye on your boys...

    Nice competing with you, Graham - I have a feeling you've beaten my boys, whether they were Karnataka or SA, quite a disproportionate amount of times. Good luck against Karna on Friday!
    once you think you're out they pull you back in

    I mean, before Harrisburg, it was highly improbable that what happened in Harrisburg could ever happen, but as soon as it did, the probability happened to go up to no less than 100 percent, so it was almost certain that it had happened.

    Similar thoughts.. its not even April so it cant be a joke then .. But Graham you have been here for a very long time .. through the best of times and the worst.. and you've stuck it out right through and taken Lancashire to great heights without doubt.
    Bein a fellow English Club manager.. the fact that your leaving is sad nonetheless.. but strong hopes that whoever replaces you will keep the strong ethics you have layed down with the club.. .

    Looking forward to this new challenge at this great club, a great ambition of mine to manage this legendary club and i hope can be half the manager Graham has been over the seasons.

    Sad to leave Chittagong but the opportunity was too good to miss
