Read statement from Steve Denison

Commenting on Steve’s open letter and his time as both a director and chairman, Mark Arthur, The Yorkshire County Cricket Club Chief Executive said: “It is a really sad day, not only for Yorkshire Cricket but for the game as a whole. Steve has achieved so much, both as a Director and Chairman of The Yorkshire County Cricket Club over the last six years. We will greatly miss his input and contribution.

“I’d like to pay a personal tribute to his support of the executive team and we wouldn’t be undertaking the development of the Emerald Stand in conjunction with Leeds Rugby without his significant input.

“The Board will meet in short order to appoint Steve’s successor.”
