A batting all-rounder who bowls off-spin, Lythgoe moved to Old Glossop this summer, following stints with Lanercost (2013-15), Carlisle (2016-20), and Alsager (2021).
This season, Lythgoe has scored 333 runs at 25.62 with a highest score of 91 (from 90 balls including 7 sixes). He has also bagged 10 wickets at 23.40 for good measure, following a prolific 2021 stint with Alsager (447 runs at 26.29 and 29 wickets at 19.55).
