Description

The Official Yearbook of The Yorkshire County Cricket Club.

  • Although Yorkshire did not quite manage to achieve a hat-trick of County Championship titles they still enjoyed a thrilling season in all three major competitions. They remained in the frame to hold on to the Specsavers County Championship Trophy until the very final day of the campaign when, after a memorable match, their crown was taken off them at Lord’s by Middlesex and they had to settle for third place. Yorkshire’s stated aim before the start of the 2016 season was to improve their performances in one-day cricket which they did, reaching Finals Day in the NatWestT20 Blast Cup and making it as far as the semi-finals of the Royal London 50-Overs Cup.
  • The 119th edition of the Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s Yearbook gives a detailed account in words and pictures of all of the action throughout a summer which, at the end of it, saw considerable changes at the top of its cricket structure. Coach, Jason Gillespie, decided to head back to Australia after five golden years at Headingley in which he helped put Yorkshire cricket back on the map and turn the team into the county club’s most successful side in 50 years. Captain, Andrew Gale, had also played a massive part in Yorkshire’s renaissance since taking hold of the reins ahead of the 2010 season, and upon Gillespie’s departure he was invited by Director of Cricket Martyn Moxon to step into Gillespie’s shoes as first team coach. Gale accepted the offer and after deciding to step down as captain and end his own playing career in order to concentrate on his new duties, his first job was to appoint Yorkshire and England batsman, Gary Ballance, as the new captain in all formats, so taking over the one-day leadership from Alex Lees. Gale’s playing career is assessed in the Yearbook whose scorecards show just what a great summer many of the players enjoyed, not the least being former England all-rounder, Tim Bresnan, who stormed back from early injury to grab wickets and also star as a batsman, his unbeaten innings of 142 against Middlesex in that title decider at Lord’s being rated as one of the greatest knocks in Yorkshire’s history. Once again, the Yearbook is crammed with interesting and informative articles from a wide number of expert cricket writers who watched Yorkshire’s progress during the season, while the statistical side of the Club and the playing records are again fully updated. And don’t forget that the Yorkshire Yearbook is the only publication to give ALL of the scorecards from ALL of the competitions in which the First and Second X1s and the young Academy side play. It makes it essential reading for all who have Yorkshire cricket close to their heart.
