Prodigiously talented batsman Harry Brook has signed a new two-year contract extension with the Club, which will see him remain at Emerald Headingley until the end of 2021.
Brook enjoyed an encouraging breakthrough season in Yorkshire’s first team in 2018, his standout innings being a brilliant second-innings century in an early season Specsavers County Championship win over Essex at Chelmsford. In First-Class cricket, the 19-year-old scored 575 runs at an average of 25.00.
A product of the Burley-in-Wharfedale club, and Sedbergh School, Brook has been involved with the Club ever since making his U13s debut in 2012 and, speaking from his winter base in Sydney, is thrilled to have committed his medium-term future to the White Rose.
“It’s a huge honour to be playing at one of the biggest clubs in the world,” he said. “To make it another three years is brilliant and having that security will enable me to go out and express myself on the field.
“It has been quality and every minute of it has been so good. Being around the senior players, learning as much as possible and just trying to play the best cricket I can at this moment in time. It has been brilliant. I’m looking forward to more of the same in the future.
“Yorkshire is the biggest club in the world and to be able to represent the county is a huge honour. I’m just so privileged. There have been some big players who have come through Yorkshire and have gone on to be successful with England. Hopefully I can continue to contribute towards the success of this great club.”
