Lancashire have sealed the acquisition of pace bowler Luke Wood from Nottinghamshire on a three-year deal. The 24-year-old had been with his home county for five years as a professional but has decided to begin a new chapter with the Red Rose.
He has taken 86 first-class wickets since making his debut in 2014, with his best performance being 5-40 against Cambridge MCCU in 2016. The left-hander admits it was hard to leave his boyhood club but says the opportunity was too good to turn down.

“This decision has been a hard one to make, leaving my boyhood Club, but I feel the time is right to move on to a new challenge,” said Wood. “I’ve had some brilliant memories at Nottinghamshire and I will be forever grateful for the time I’ve spent here.
“With my contract coming to an end, I had the opportunity to talk to other interested counties. Ultimately, this led to me seeking a new challenge with Lancashire. “Obviously, I wish Notts and all the friends I’ve made here the best for the future.”
