Yorkshire trio Edward Booth, Yash Vagadia and Sam Wisniewski were awarded their Academy Caps in September, as recognition of their progression over the past few years.

The Academy have had a peculiar year with their usual schedule heavily disrupted due to the coronavirus, meaning a late start to the season and heavily reduced game-time. However, the opportunity to return to the field of play and hone their skills in the last few months can only have helped with player development. For Booth, Vagadia and Wisniewski, the strange season finished very well as they were presented their Academy caps by Yorkshire Vikings’ captain David Willey ahead of a second eleven T20 against Lancashire.

Academy Head Coach Richard Damms said: “I hope and am positive that the lads will see it as a real honour. As Dave (Willey) pointed out in his speech, I guess it’s the first rung on the ladder at Yorkshire County Cricket Club.

“Ordinarily, they would have been presented in April, but with everything that has happened this year, it’s a nice moment to do it now. The bottom line is that all three deserve their caps and let’s see what the future brings for them now.”
