The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is saddened to learn that former player Mike Cowan has passed away, aged 89.
Cowan enjoyed a First-Class career at Yorkshire between 1953 and 1962, earning his cap in 1960. The left-arm fast-medium bowler took 276 First-Class wickets and was part of three County Championship winning squads towards the backend of his Yorkshire career.
Yorkshire and Surrey’s players will pay tribute to Cowan before play on day two of their LV= Insurance County Championship match at Scarborough by observing a minute’s silence. Yorkshire’s players will also wear black armbands in remembrance of one of the Club’s vice-presidents.
The thoughts of everyone at The Yorkshire County Cricket Club are with Mike’s family and friends at this difficult time.
