Accrington have appointed former Lancashire and England batsman David Lloyd to their board of directors.
Lloyd, who played for Accrington in the Lancashire Combination League before his cricket career took off, became a shareholder at his hometown club last year and will join chairman Ilyas Khan, chief executive Rob Heys and directors Peter Marsden and Peter Shaw on the board.
Now a successful cricket commentator and media personality, the 64-year-old said in an official club statement: "I am honoured to be a part of the ongoing success of the club. No matter where I am or what I am doing, my links with Accrington have never waned."
He added: "I was proud to become a shareholder last year and now look forward to assisting the board in its efforts to create a well-run, community-based football club we can all be proud of."
Khan added: "We highlighted in November that we would supplement the board with independent non-executive directors - in David we have added to the credibility and the professionalism of the board in the best way possible.
"Not only does David bring to the board a high level of propriety, but as an Accringtonian he also bears the interests of our town and our club at the forefront of his mind."
