Lancs confirm Pilling death

Lancashire have confirmed former batsman Harry Pilling's death, aged 69.

Pilling spent 18 years at Old Trafford in the 1960s and 70s, memorably striking an unbeaten 70 to help the north-west county to their first Gillette Cup in 1970.

"LCCC is saddened to hear the news that our former player Harry Pilling has passed away. Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time," Lancashire said on their official Twitter account today.
