The Yorkshire County Cricket Club can confirm that Steven Patterson has stepped down as Club Captain.

Speaking about the decision to step down, Patterson said: “It’s been an honour and a privilege to Captain the club for the past five seasons. I would like to thank those who entrusted me with the position, my teammates for always getting behind me, and the members and supporters for their unwavering support. I would like to assure you that I’ve never taken the position for granted, and I’ve always given my very best in the interests of the team.

“It’s been made clear to me over the last few days that my career at Yorkshire will come to an end when the season finishes.

“With that in mind, I think now is the appropriate time to step back from the captaincy. It will allow me time to consider my future, and to enjoy the time I have left playing at the club.

“I will remain available for selection for the remainder of the summer, and if selected, will give my all for the team as I have done for the past 18 years.”
