After a very prolonged absence, the news page is back :) It's not especially good news though, it has been confirmed that tomorrow Andy will go under the knife (I suppose it's better than going under the hammer ...) for a hernia operation which will rule him out of the remainder of the season, including England's final Test Match against India and the ICC champions Trophy. However, he hopes to be fit for The upcoming Ashes and World Cup.

13th July 2000
England beat Zimbabwe in today's one day international at Old Trafford, and Andy hit a brilliant 42 not out, which earned him the man of the match award. He did refuse to speak to the media after winning it though, and who can blame him really because they all suck with style. You go Andy! (If only all reporters were like me, the world would be a much better place I reckon :) )

12th July 2000
Sorry about the delay in this, I've been away for a few days - but they've been calling him! It's absolutely disgraceful is this, I read in the paper the England selectors have told him his England career is being threatened because he is allegedly too fat. (Isn't that attitude a bit 'fattist'?) Apparently Andy has since stood up for himself against these ridiculous allegations (you go Andy!). (Ever professional reporting there from Karen := )

24th June 2000
Lancashire won their first rain-hit day night match of the season against Northants at Old Trafford last night. Andy scored 7 off 9 balls (1 six!), and finished the match with bowling figures of 8-0-30-2.

12th June 2000
Good morning Andy Flintoff! Calm yourself, yesterday I met Andy, for the first (and probably last) time ever. I greeted him as if he were the king or something, with a hearty 'Good morning!' It was before Lancashire's match against Worcestershire, which Lancs sadly lost, but Andy scored a magnificent 64.

8th June 2000
Today, Lancashire beat Hampshire at Aigburth, Liverpool. Lancashire won the toss and elected to field, which proved a good decision as Hampshire were bowled out for just 95 in their first innings. Andy's bowling figures were 5-2-12-3. In Lancashire's innings he scored a magnificent 73 off 108 balls, before being trapped leg before by Alan Mullally. In Hampshire's second innings, Andy once again did some damage, with bowling figures of 10.4-5-18-4.

27th May 2000
Well, England beat Zimbabwe by a hefty margin when the first test ended last Sunday. Unfortunately, Andy only scored one run in the first England innings, and wasn't offered a chance to redeem himself as England didn't bat again! Oh well, maybe next time :)

13th May 2000
Tons and tons of news to bring you today. Sorry about the delay in me updating this site.
I saw Andy last Sunday! It was at Lancashire's match against Leicestershire in the National League at Old Trafford. Unfortunately he only scored 7, but his bowling was a bit better with the figures being 9-1-26-1. The match was tied in the end.
Against Durham in the Benson and Hedges quarter final on May 9th, he scored 10 runs, and his bowling figures were 10-1-30-2. Lanky won the match by 3 wickets.
Lancashire's County championship match against Durham at the Riverside finished today, with Lancs winning by 141 runs. Andy scored 10 in each innings (favourite number at the moment?!) His bowling figures for the first were 5-2-10-0 and for the second they were 4-1-3-0.
Today the squad was announced for England's first test against Zimbabwe, which starts on Thursday. andy was included in the 13 squad members, as were Lancs teammates Michael Atherton and Chris Schofield. Well Done!
I'm thinking about expanding this site to cover all of Lancashire. Please let me know what you think by signing the guestbook! (Even if you don't have an opinion on that then please still do sign in - that's what it's there for!)

6th May 2000
Lancashire beat Leicestershire at Old Trafford by an innings and 25 runs. Leicester batted first, in this innings Andy's bowling figures were 18-7-31-2. In Lancashire's innings, he scored a magnificent 119 off 206 balls (19 fours, 1 six). Lanky then went on to well and truly thrash Leicestershire in the final innings, with Andy's bowling figures being 8-4-8-1.

29th April 2000
Lancashire's County Championship match against Kent at Canterbury was abandoned. In the match, Andy top scored in Lancashire's first (and only) innings with 77 runs off 82 balls, before being caught by Rahul Dravid off the bowling of Martin Saggers. The innings lasted for 207 minutes and contained 13 fours.

22nd April 2000
In Lancashire's Benson and Hedges Cup match (20/4/00) against Derbyshire at Derby, Andy scored 70 runs before being caught off the bowling of Karl Krikken. The innings lasted for 92 minutes and included 8 fours and 1 six. His bowling figures in the match were 9-1-40-1. Sadly, this was not enough to prevent Lancashire suffering a 6 wicket loss at the hands of the home side.

25th March 2000
In Lancashire's pre-season tour of South Africa, Andy came back from injury in good form, scoring 41 against Western Province 'B'. Lancashire won the match by 7 wickets

2nd March 2000
Yesterday it was announced that Andy is among the 12 players to have been offered central contracts by the ECB for the coming year. The other Lancashire players to be included were Michael Atherton and Chris Schofield. Well done to all concerned!
Again, apologies for the lack of updates recently. The new, up-to-date stats should be coming soon!

6th January 2000
Apologies everyone for the delay in bringing you this news but I'm sure I don't have to tell you that Andy has broken his left foot against South Africa. This spells the end of his tour. More news as I get it and get well soon Andy! Take care of that other foot, won't you? :-)

3rd January 2000
In England's first innings in the 4th test against South Afica at Cape Town, Andy scored 22 off 47 balls. He was in for 57 minutes before being caught by Jonty Rhodes off the bowling of Lance Klusener. His innings contained 3 fours. (Not too bad then considering he was right at the end of the order.)

11th December 1999
Today, in England's second test against South Africa at Port Elizabeth, Andy hit 42 runs off 37 balls to help England to a total of 364/9 at the close of play. He was in for 67 minutes until being bowled by Shaun Pollock. The innings included 9 fours.
