Lancashire's New Stands Will Have To Be Restructured After 2013 Season
Published March 20, 2013
NO ASHES IMPACT: In London, Andy Wilson wrote the new stands were completed last year as part of the £32M ($48M) redevelopment of Old Trafford. The club has stressed that "there will be no impact" on the Ashes Test it is to stage this summer to celebrate Old Trafford's return as an int'l venue. The ground is already "virtually sold out" for the first four days of the event. But this will be seen as the latest in a series of "blows that have dogged the redevelopment since it was first mooted almost a decade ago" (GUARDIAN, 3/19).
