LAN­CASHIRE le­gend Clive Lloyd has been awarded a knight­hood in the New Year Honours list.

While Red Rose ace Jos But­tler has re­ceived an MBE af­ter play­ing a key part in Eng­land’s World Cup win this sum­mer.

Lloyd, 75, joins a long list of West Indies crick­et­ing alumni to re­ceive the award, in­clud­ing the likes of Sir Gary Sobers, Sir Ever­ton Weekes and Sir Viv Richards.

The for­mer West Indies cap­tain played for al­most two decades for Lan­cashire, with whom he re­tains a strong af­fil­i­a­tion.

The im­pact Lloyd had dur­ing his play­ing ca­reer at Old Traf­ford was em­pha­sised by the county’s then cap­tain Jack Bond, who said: “His value to Lan­cashire can­not be mea­sured by or­di­nary stan­dards.”

Af­ter first sign­ing for Lan­cashire in 1968, he went on to win two OneDay League ti­tles in 1969 and 1970 and four Gil­lette Cups be­tween 1970 and 1975, with a mem­o­rable 126 against War­wick­shire in the 1972 fi­nal at Lord’s.

In to­tal, he played 273 one-day games for the club, scor­ing 8,522 runs, and 219 first-class matches, scor­ing 12,764 runs and 30 cen­turies.

Af­ter re­tir­ing, he sat on the club’s com­mit­tee from 1993 to 2012 and is now a Vice Pres­i­dent.

Cur­rent Lan­cashire chair­man David Hodgkiss said: “I am ab­so­lutely thrilled that Clive has been awarded a knight­hood for his ex­tra­or­di­nary ser­vice to cricket. What he achieved for both the West Indies and for Lan­cashire was out­stand­ing. He was with­out doubt one of the finest and most en­ter­tain­ing play­ers of his gen­er­a­tion.

“He was the fo­cal point of the Lan­cashire side that was so suc­cess­ful par­tic­u­larly in one-day cricket and will cer­tainly go down as one of the club’s best ever over­seas play­ers.

“He is still a great friend of the club and we look for­ward to wel­com­ing him back to Emi­rates Old Traf­ford next sum­mer.” Lloyd was named cap­tain of the West Indies in 1974, three years af­ter be­ing awarded the pres­ti­gious ti­tle of Wis­den Crick­eter of the Year.

At the time the West Indies were far from a dom­i­nant force in world cricket, and af­ter an em­bar­rass­ing Test se­ries de­feat in Aus­tralia in 1976, Lloyd vowed: “I prom­ise we will never get another flog­ging like this while I am cap­tain.”

Lloyd was true to his word as he went on to estab­lish the West Indies as a global force, as well as re­turn­ing sta­tis­tics which make him one of the finest Test cap­tains of all time.

He led the West Indies in 70 Tests of which they won 36. He also led them to two World Cup wins in 1975 and 1979 and was the first West Indies player to achieve 100 in­ter­na­tional caps.

Lan­cashire wick­et­keeper But­tler, mean­while, guar­an­teed Eng­land lifted the World Cup for the first time when he gath­ered Ja­son Roy’s throw and com­pleted the match-winning run-out un­der ex­treme pres­sure in the fi­nal at Lord’s.

Ben Stokes, Joe Root, Eoin Mor­gan and Trevor Bayliss have also been awarded ti­tles for ser­vices to cricket fol­low­ing the suc­cess of this sum­mer.

Manch­ester-based dou­ble Olympic taek­wondo cham­pion Jade Jones, who re­ceived an MBE in 2013 in the wake of her ini­tial Olympic tri­umph, has been up­graded to an OBE in recog­ni­tion of another stel­lar year at the top of her sport.

Hav­ing re­tained her Olympic ti­tle in Rio in 2016, Jones claimed an elu­sive first world ti­tle in Manch­ester in May and will tar­get a third straight Olympic crown in Tokyo next year.

“There were times I doubted if I could ever do it,” Jones said. “This is only go­ing to in­crease my mo­ti­va­tion to go on and make it three Olympic ti­tles in a row.”

And City’s Jill Scott has an MBE af­ter help­ing steer Eng­land to the Women’s World Cup semi-fi­nals, where they lost to even­tual win­ners the United States.
