Ripon-based seamer Ben Coad has today signed a two-year contract extension, keeping him at Emerald Headingley until the end of 2021.

The 24-year-old, whose rise has been quite remarkable, has now taken an impressive 103 wickets in just 24 First-Class fixtures at an average of 17.70.

Coad, who was capped in September this year, became the 182nd player to proudly wear the 11-petalled badge instituted by the great Lord Hawke. He scooped the 2018 Players’ Player of the Year award and looks central to the Club’s plans for years to come.

“I’ve always wanted to play at Yorkshire,” Coad told “It has been something I’ve wanted from a very young age. It’s not only the biggest club in England, but probably the world. It’s a massive privilege to play here and a massive honour to sign an extension.”
