FRANK LAMPARD TO RECEIVE CHELSEA AWARD

Posted on: Fri 12 Jan 2007

Frank Lampard will receive an award from Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck on the pitch before the Wigan game this Saturday to mark his milestone of reaching 300 games for the club.

 

It will be presented when the player finishes his warm-up as he returns to the dressing room.

 

Lampard is the first Chelsea player to reach 300 games since Gianfranco Zola and Graeme Le Saux did it in close succession back in 2003. Both received awards.

 

His 300th appearance was on Wednesday at Wycombe. Achieved in five-and-a-half years, he has averaged over 50 games a season for the club.

 

John Terry, currently injured, is just behind him on 295 games.
