The Yorkshire County Cricket Club are delighted to announce that Josh Poysden has signed a three-year-deal from Warwickshire.

Leg-spinner Poysden, who recorded figures of 1-37 whilst representing the White Rose in the Specsavers County Championship victory over Lancashire at Emirates Old Trafford in July, will initially re-join on-loan for the remainder of the 2018 season.

The 27-year-old has taken 27 wickets from 12 First-Class matches, including two five-wicket hauls. With the white ball, Poysden has impressive economy rates of 5.96 in List A cricket and 7.53 in T20s.

Director of Cricket Martyn Moxon said: “We are delighted that Josh has signed a three-year contract at Yorkshire and will join us on loan until the end of the season. Following on from Josh’s previous loan move, we believe that his skillset will compliment and strengthen our bowling attack in our remaining six championship fixtures.

“We are still in negotiations with Adil Rashid regarding 2019 and our complete spin bowling squad will be announced in due course.”

Poysden has had limited opportunities at Warwickshire with Jeetan Patel leading the spin attack and cannot wait to contribute to future success at Emerald Headingley.

“I’m really delighted,” Poysden said. “It is massively exciting to be joining Yorkshire, a Club with a massive history and lots of top class players. I’m looking forward to hopefully contributing to some big wins for the Club over the next three years.”

After already representing the White Rose this summer, Poysden is no stranger to the Yorkshire dressing room and is pleased to have already contributed to a victory in a Roses game.
