The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to confirm that Dom Bess will join on a permanent deal from the 2021 season.

Bess, who enjoyed a loan spell with Yorkshire in 2019, has penned a four-year deal, keeping him at Emerald Headingley until October 2024.

The Exeter-born off-spinner made his Test debut for England against Pakistan in 2018 and has gone on to play in ten Test Matches. Yorkshire’s newest acquisition has played 47 First Class matches to date and has taken 129 wickets.

Although the signing of Bess will strengthen the club’s spin options from next season, the 23-year-old has a proven ability to add valuable runs with the bat, already having a Test half-century and First Class hundred to his name.

Yorkshire’s newest acquisition impressed during his loan spell at Emerald Headingley in 2019, taking 11 wickets and scoring 164 runs. Arguably Bess’ most notable performance came at home to Essex, claiming three wickets and scoring a composed 91 not out in the Specsavers County Championship.
