Four years after retiring from international cricket, former England skipper Andrew Flintoff is eyeing to make a T20 return with former club St Annes.

The 36-year-old all-rounder played for the Northern League side St Annes as a junior before joining Lancashire.

The BBC reported that this 6′ 4″ athlete communicated his interest to the Fylde club through his grandfather, who is now actively involved with the club activities.

We’re all very excited about the prospect of him coming back to the club where he spent a few years when he was a teenager,” said St Annes chairman John Cotton while speaking to BBC.

His grandfather comes into the cricket club each morning. He said Andrew had been invited to play in a charity game at Lord’s in July, and he may wish to keep his hand in by playing some Twenty20 games for St Annes and asked for a registration form. I’ve no reason to believe he wouldn’t (complete it),” added Cotton.

Flintoff hanged up his Cricket in 2010 after his final Test against Australia at the Oval. He played 79 Tests and 141 one-dayers for Australia, and was also part of the Ashes series victories against Australia in 2005 and 2009.

Since retiring in September 2010 because of a persistent knee injury, he has forged a successful media career and also had a brief stint as a professional boxer, winning his only fight, his first fight against American Richard Dawson in 2012.
