Alviro Petersen looking forward to joining Lancashire - 25th March 2015

I am really looking forward to playing cricket for Lancashire this season and in just a couple of weeks time I will be packing my bags and heading off to Old Trafford to join up with the rest of the squad.

I always enjoy playing cricket in England and even though I know that it isn't quite as warm as it is in South Africa there is something very special about spending a summer there playing in the three domestic competitions.

Lancashire has a long and successful history in the game and many famous cricketers have played for them over the years. Old Trafford is a Test Match hosting ground with a great tradition and it's brilliant to think that it is going to be my home ground for this season.

Over the years I have played at Old Trafford in a number of matches and I have some very fond memories of game there.

In fact the last time that I was there was in 2014 when I scored 155 for Somerset, so I will be hoping to carry on with that form when I am playing for Lancashire.

I plan to arrive in Manchester on April 10th in time to prepare for Lancashire's opening match in the LV=Championship away at Derbyshire on April 19th before returning to meet Kent at Old Trafford a week later.

My family will be joining me in Manchester and we all look forward to a n enjoyable time in England and I hope that I can help Lancashire to return to the top division in the Championship.
