Jonathan Tattersall made his first-team debut in the final Yorkshire Bank 40 match of the 2013 season against Glamorgan at Headingley, but would have hoped for a better outcome as he fell for a two-ball duck.
Tattersall is a batting all-rounder who has built his reputation upon his skills at the top of the order. He has also been described as “probably one of the best fielders we have at the club” by second XI coach Paul Farbrace.
With that in mind, it will be no surprise to learn that he substitute fielded for England’s Test team in 2013 before playing for their under 19s team later in the summer.
Ahead of the 2014, Tattersall signed junior professional terms at Headingley.
“He’s an exciting lad. He doesn’t say a great deal, but when he does it counts. He can bat anywhere in the top six even though he’s predominantly an opener,” added Farbrace.
2013 – Played in two Tests and five one-day internationals for England’s under 19s team on tour of South Africa in January and February, scoring two fifties and taking five wickets. He also scored two half-centuries in their summer series against Pakistan and Bangladesh. Having debuted in Yorkshire’s first team at the end of the summer, he signed junior professional terms with the county. He was also named in the England under 19s squad for their winter series against Pakistan in the UAE. Tattersall sub fielded for the full England team at Headingley in the second Test of their summer series against New Zealand.
