The Yorkshire County Cricket Club can confirm that Matthew Waite will join Worcestershire at the conclusion of the 2022 season.

The all-rounder, who debuted for Yorkshire in 2014, has scored 355 runs and taken 27 wickets in 12 First-Class appearances for the Club.

Yorkshire’s Interim Managing Director of Cricket Darren Gough said: “With Matthew out of contract at the end of the season and a big squad of talented players vying for places here at Yorkshire, we have been giving him opportunities to show us his skills before making a decision on his future with us.

“However, having completed a loan spell at New Road earlier this year, Worcestershire have offered him a good contract which he has opted to take.

“Everyone here would like to wish him every success in the future and thank him for his efforts.”

Waite said: “Playing for Yorkshire has fulfilled a childhood dream of mine and I am proud to say that I have represented the club for a number of years.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the people who have helped me along my journey at Yorkshire. Firstly, I’d like to thank all the staff that I have worked with at the club, especially the coaching and medical staff who have all put so much time and effort into getting me to where I am now. I’d like to thank the members for their fantastic support. Last but not least, all of the teammates that I’ve played with. I’ve grown up with a lot of the lads and I’ve absolutely loved playing with each and every one of them, whilst making some great memories along the way.

“I wish the club every success going forward.”
