David Hodges, President of Lancashire, died at the age of 71 after contracting the Coronavirus.
Hodges, who has been serving on the Board of Old Trafford for 22 years, is understood to have major health problems.
After previously serving as Treasurer and Vice President, he took the position of Michael Cairns in April 2017 and has been a central figure in Old Trafford’s overhaul over the past decade, a renewal period, including Building The Point and raising £ 9 million in public funds for the new Hilton hotel.
The success of these plans was reflected in Old Trafford, which hosted a prestigious match between India and Pakistan in the World Cup last summer and the first semi-finals.
“In addition to the announcement of his family, Lancashire Cricket unfortunately announces the death of its boss, David Hodgesk Obi,” a club statement said Monday morning.
David served the club par excellence for many years, including the cashier, vice president and ultimately president.
