The Yorkshire County Cricket Club today confirmed that seam-bowler Josh Shaw will join Gloucestershire County Cricket Club on a three-year deal at the end of the season. The Wakefield-born bowler will also spend the rest of the season on loan at the Bristol-based county.
Shaw has a long-standing relationship with Gloucestershire, having first spent time there on a season-long loan in 2016, and during subsequent loan spells since then. The fast bowler has claimed 82 First-Class wickets in his career to date. However, opportunities in a White Rose shirt have been limited to just eight First-Class games, which has seen the 23-year-old claim 12 wickets.
Shaw said: “Being able to pull that White Rose on and play for Yorkshire has been a real honour.
“I have been fortunate to achieve what all club cricketers in this county dream of, represent Yorkshire. I have done so for the last thirteen years, firstly at schoolboy level, through to Academy and onto the professional ranks, with the second and first eleven.
“I’ve had much help and encouragement from numerous coaches and administrators and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved.”
