Yorkshire Southern Group

Background

The Southern Group was formed in 1980. With around 200 members We promote and support Yorkshire County Cricket Club and provide sponsorship for the development of young Yorkshire born cricketers.

During the season we arrange facilities when Yorkshire are playing in the South. This can include a lunch or private viewing facilities. We also play the game, arranging a small number of casual fixtures.

In the winter we hold various events including informal evenings with the players or other key figures from the County Club. There is an Annual Dinner or Lunch held in London each November.

Past guest speakers have included Stewart Regan, Christopher Martin-Jenkins, Colin Graves, David Byas and Stephen Green.

Details of this year’s events can be viewed below.

Southern Group members receive a quarterly newsletter. Read past editions here

Sponsorship

We regularly provide financial sponsorship to assist the development of the club’s younger players. This has included funds for inter-personal and media skills training, coaching mats and bats for scholarship players. In 2005 we sponsored members of Yorkshire’s Young Fast Bowling Squad.

In 2006/7 we sponsored Joe Sayers and Jonathan Bairstow on their respective trips to South Africa. See more on Yorkshire CCC website
