Andrew Flintoff is plotting a comeback for his former junior club as the all-rounder continues his rehabilitation from knee surgery.

‘Freddie’ could represent Northern League club St Annes after league authorities amended a residency rule to allow the Dubai-based Flintoff to play.

The 32-year-old retired from Test and first class cricket at the end of the 2009 Ashes series but has reiterated his desire to return to the limited overs game.

Deep vein thrombosis complicated his initial recovery however, and Flintoff is still in the early stages of rehabilitation.

He has returned from Dubai, where he relocated with his family last year, in order to step up training and has batted in the Lancashire nets.

During his absence England’s one day teams have won the T20 World Cup and beaten Australia and South Africa at 50 over level, leading some to question his potential value to the national team.

However, Flintoff has one year remaining on his IPL deal with Chennai Super Kings and is keen to extend his highly successful career for as long as possible.
