Yorkshire Duo Land New Long-Term Deals

Yorkshire Duo Land New Long-Term Deals

Batsman Harry Brook and wicketkeeper Jonny Tattersall have both signed new deals at Yorkshire to keep them with the county until 2021. The pair has been handed new three-year deals after impressing in the past 12 months.

Brook, 19, enjoyed a solid first full campaign, scoring 575 first-class runs at an average of 25, while Tattersall also shone at times with the gloves at Headingley.

Brook was in no doubt he would pen new terms when offered them and is looking forward to the future. “It’s a huge honour to be playing at one of the biggest clubs in the world,” he told the club’s website.

“There have been some big players who have come through Yorkshire and have gone on to be successful with England. Hopefully, I can continue to contribute towards the success of this great club.”

Tattersall’s story is one of redemption after he had originally been released by Yorkshire in 2015 but, after he returned to play in the backup side in 2016, he then signed a one-year deal last season.

He said: “It takes a lot off your shoulders. You can work hard in the winter and not worry whether you’re out of contract at the end of the next season. “I’m glad I can put that period to behind me and get down to some hard work. Obviously, last season was brilliant and hopefully, I can now push on.”
