The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that Roger Hutton has been appointed as its new chairman, with former all-rounder and vice-captain Neil Hartley becoming the Club’s new vice-chairman.
Hutton, a Joint Managing Partner at Leeds based law firm Clarion Solicitors, succeeds Robin Smith who stepped down at the Club’s recent annual general meeting (AGM). Yorkshire’s new chairman was overwhelmingly voted onto the Board at the same meeting and has been a valuable supporter of Yorkshire cricket over the years, with Clarion Solicitors becoming the Yorkshire Diamonds’ team principal sponsor in 2016.
Speaking about his appointment as chairman, Hutton said: “My dad spent my childhood regaling me with stories of Len Hutton and Yorkshire County Cricket Club. I have been steeped in the Club and its history, so I could not be prouder than to be appointed chairman of the Club.
“Yorkshire has one of the strongest and most knowledgeable memberships in the country and I am anxious that their views are heard at a national level.
