Dom Bess will arrive at Yorkshire ahead of his loan spell with expectations high – both personally and from the club’s supporters point of view.

The Somerset off-spinner knows a decent amount about the White Rose county.

Coming through the age-groups in Devon, he played against Yorkshire sides regularly, with Jordan Thompson a contemporary of his.

The 21-year-old has also played senior cricket alongside Matthew Fisher and Tom Kohler-Cadmore in both MCC and England Lions colours and with Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow in Test Match cricket this time last year.

Not only that, he currently lives with Jack Brooks in Taunton, with the former Yorkshire quick even giving him cookery lessons.

“I’ve been teaching Dom how to cook my favourite courgette dish!” said Brooksy over the winter.

Bess said: “I’ve heard very good stories about Yorkshire.

“It’s obviously a very good club.

“Luckily, I was able to play one of the Tests against Pakistan up at Headingley last year. That was only the second time I’ve played there, and it was a great privilege.

“I’ve got really good memories of Headingley.

“Brooksy has always said good things about Yorkshire, about the lads and the place in general.

“Ever since I grew up in Devon, I’ve known Yorkshire are very strong. Jordan Thompson was the captain of the same age-group as me.

“Throughout my whole journey in cricket, Yorkshire have been very competitive, and they’re a side who you can never take your foot off the gas against. It’s exciting.”
