Champion Evening with YCCC!

A big crowd for Yorkshire CCC on Wednesday 9 December - champions on and off the field! To top off Championship titles in men's, women's and age-group cricket, Commercial Director Andy Dawson and his team recently received the ECB Business of Cricket Award 2015, while Jonny Bairstow and York's Jack Leaning were named Championship Player of the Year and Young Cricketer of the Year by the Cricket Writers' Club - succeeding Adam Lyth and Alex Lees.

Fresh from Lords, where he was presenting Yorkshire's bid for a team in the first Women's Cricket Super League, Chief Executive Mark Arthur opened up with a forthright appraisal of the club and its ambitions over the next five years before introducing Andy, Jack and ex-England Under-19 Captain, Cottingham's own Will Rhodes. A chance for a photo with the historic Championship trophy, then a lively Q&A session kept all the speakers on their toes! Both Jack and Will have an exciting few months ahead. Jack is now en route for Sydney to spend his third winter with Sutherland CC, while Will plans to head for India to gain more experience of facing spin bowlers. Best of luck to them both!
