Glen Chapple is set for a fifth season as Lancashire captain

Glen Chapple will retain the captaincy at Lancashire for a fifth season in 2013.

Chapple took on the role in 2009 with the highlight of his spell in charge being their title triumph in 2011. They were, however, relegated last term and will play in Division Two next season.

He said: "I'm delighted to be captain during what will be my fifth season in the role. We'll be working hard, as always, during the winter to ensure that we progress in all competitions."

Cricket director Mike Watkinson said: "Glen has the quality and fitness to lead by example.

"He will oversee a young squad in 2013 and his experience will be crucial as we look forward to a successful campaign in both Championship and one-day cricket."
