The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to confirm a cohort of eight young stars who have signed contract extensions with the Club.

Finlay Bean, Ben Cliff, Jafer Chohan, Harry Duke, Will Luxton, James Wharton, Matthew Revis and Yash Vagadia have all signed contract extensions and committed their futures to the county.

All-rounder Revis, 21, who has shown significant development over the last 12 months under Ottis Gibson and his coaching team, has signed a three-year extension with the Club.

Yorkshire’s Matthew Revis takes the applause from fans and supporters after his unbeaten century against Gloucestershire.

Fast bowler Cliff, 20, and left-handed batter Bean, 21, have both signed two-year extensions alongside leg-spinner Chohan, 21, batter Wharton, 22, and right-hander Luxton, 20.

Opener Bean preceded his contract announcement with a third LV= Insurance County Championship century of the season earlier today, in the ongoing clash with Worcestershire at New Road.

Leg-spinner Chohan’s is the ideal birthday present as he celebrates his 21st today, and he like Bean has been elevated from rookie status to a maiden full professional contract.

Wicketkeeper-batter Duke, 21, has signed a one-year extension, while Newcastle-born youngster Vagadia, 19, has also extended his maiden rookie contract by a year.

Darren Gough, Yorkshire’s Managing Director of Cricket, said: I’m delighted that we have secured these eight contract renewals this year.

“They are all players we want to keep and have our faith in, and what’s great to see is that there are a lot of young players in those renewals – so I am over the moon.

“The Club is very excited about the prospects we have with these talented young players – there is still growth for all of them, but they’ve all shown potential and talent when they’ve played and that’s what gives us drive and optimism going forward.

“It’s fantastic to have this young group of players who can learn and develop alongside our more experienced players in the side. We can now start to build a squad that will take us forward and have some continuity in selection – that is what we are aiming for.”
