Stockport accountants HURST has secured Lancashire County Cricket Club as a full-service client following a competitive tender involving national firms.
The agreement will see HURST provide audit, accounting, tax and compliance services to the club and its charity arm, the LCCC Foundation.
Tim Potter, chief executive of HURST, said:
We are thrilled to be appointed by Lancashire to provide our full range of accounting services.

Other HURST clients in the sector include Chill Factore, Eurocamp and Holiday Inn Express.

It’s great to have HURST on board and we’re looking forward to working with them.
“As the club and the foundation continue to grow, it is increasingly important that the finance team have the support of proactive and innovative business advisers, which HURST has shown it can be.
“What impressed us most was HURST’s ability to think commercially and focus on bringing forward new ideas that will add value to our business.
