from 15.1 overs, while Jack Brooks added four in the in­nings and nine in the match.

Lan­cashire will be might­ily frus­trated at let­ting a po­si­tion of strength in this game slip, and they have not won a Roses Cham­pi­onship match since 2011 - a run of eight fix­tures, of which York­shire have won five.

At the end of day one, Lan­cashire were 105 with­out loss re­ply­ing to York­shire’s firstin­nings 209. From then on, the White Rose dom­i­nated the game on the way to a fourth win from 12 in Divi­sion One this sea­son.

Hav­ing started their chase of 230 im­me­di­ately af­ter tea on day three, Lan­cashire had reached 66-2 be­fore slip­ping into dis­ar­ray at 95-7.

Coad claimed four for 14 from 10 overs, in­clud­ing his sec­ond, third and fourth scalps in an eight-ball spell.

That left Josh Bo­han­non and Ke­shav Ma­haraj with a moun­tain with an un­en­vi­able task at the start of day four.

Ma­haraj crashed the first ball of the day from Coad for four through the cov­ers, but he fell in the fourth over of the morn­ing when bowled by Brooks for 18, leav­ing Lan­cashire at 122-8 in the 42nd. Brooks claimed his fourth wicket of the in­nings when he bowled Gra­ham Onions at the end of the 48th over be­fore Coad wrapped things up by get­ting Bo­han­non sharply caught at mid-wicket by Tim Bres­nan at the sec­ond at­tempt at the start of the 49th two wick­ets in two balls. SUR­REY have won the County Cham­pi­onship for the first time since 2002 af­ter beat­ing Worces­ter­shire by three wick­ets.

Led by 66 from cap­tain Rory Burns, the top run-scorer in do­mes­tic first-class cricket, Sur­rey chased 272 to seal the ti­tle with two games to play.

The Eng­land hope­ful shared 111 with Mark Stone­man (59) for the first wicket to put them in com­mand at New Road.

Worces­ter­shire, bot­tom of Divi­sion One, fought back with three wick­ets be­fore lunch but Ol­lie Pope’s 49 helped the vis­i­tors home. FOR­MER Eng­land all-rounder Paul Colling­wood has an­nounced he will re­tire from ALL forms of the game af­ter Durham’s fi­nal game of the County Cham­pi­onship sea­son.

Colling­wood amassed 16,891 runs and 164 wick­ets in 304 first-class ap­pear­ances.
