Lancashire have announced former captains Glen Chapple and Mark Chilton as their permanent head coach and assistant.

Chapple and Chilton were installed in the same roles on a temporary basis after Ashley Giles’ return to Warwickshire at the end of last month.

Chapple, who will be 43 next week, played the final match of his stalwart 23-year career at the end of 2015 - while Chilton gave sterling service to the county between 1997 and 2011.

Both all-rounder Chapple and opener Chilton moved from the middle on to Lancashire’s coaching staff in recent years.
