Following the death of HM The Queen

It is with great sadness that we all learned of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II yesterday.

The Queen’s devotion to duty and selfless steadfast spirit was a shining beacon of light to us all.

On behalf of The Yorkshire County Cricket Club, we extend our condolences to His Majesty King Charles III and the whole Royal family.

During the period of official mourning and as a mark of our profound respect, we will be scaling back activities at the Club where appropriate.

The Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s Board has today decided to cancel the Extraordinary General Meeting scheduled to take place on Tuesday 13 September as we observe a period of national reflection by members, staff, and players. YCCC will notify Members of a new date for the EGM following Her Majesty’s funeral.

Trustees of the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation have taken the decision to postpone its annual ‘Community Without Boundaries’ conference, which is also scheduled to take place on Tuesday 13 September.

With respect to the ECB’s High Performance Review, we will ensure that we allocate appropriate time to actively engage and consult with our members and key stakeholders to understand their views. We will keep members informed and updated on this process as we know how passionate our membership is about the game.

Further information will be communicated in due course.
