Andrew Gale may have missed out on ticking off a line on his bucket list as a Yorkshire player, but at least he will get second prize next June after this week’s release of the 2020 county fixtures.

“It’s always a game I would have loved to have played in – Lancashire at Scarborough,” said the White Rose coach.

A Roses Specsavers County Championship fixture at North Marine Road, starting on Sunday June 14, stands out as the highlight of Yorkshire’s summer schedule.

It will be the first time since 1991 that the two counties have met on the East Coast and only the third time in first-class history.

“That will be good,” said Gale, whose side also welcome Warwickshire to Scarborough for Festival week in August. “The Roses games are always good and well supported, but that fixture will be a great spectacle.

“It’s not always a full house in June, so to have Lancashire there will likely change that.

“Everyone always talks about Festival week with school holidays and such, but Lancashire will be the bigger fixture this year.”
