The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is deeply saddened to learn that former Board member and friend of the Club, Harry Gration, has passed away.

Gration enjoyed a remarkable career in broadcasting, working for the BBC from 1978 until his final show with Look North in 2020. He was involved in a vast amount of charity work and served on the YCCC Board from 2013 until 2015.

As a lover of cricket, he was often seen at Headingley and other local grounds either with microphone in hand, or for the love of the game.

The thoughts of everyone at the Club are with Harry’s family and friends at this difficult time.
