When Jack Brooks sits down and reflects on his time at Yorkshire, Roses clashes will be at the forefront of his mind.
The Somerset bound quick will leave Emerald Headingley in a few weeks with his superb nine-wicket bag in a crucial 95-run win his last act against the Red Rose.
Brooks, 34, brilliantly put the skids under Lancashire’s pursuit of victory with five wickets in the first innings and four more in the second as the chased 230.
It preserved an unbeaten Roses record for the effervescent Oxford-born star.
And Brooks showed just what the White Rose county and the rivalry means to him when he wheeled away punching the air and whipping up the crowd having bowled Red Rose captain Liam Livingstone late on Wednesday’s third day.
Since arriving at Yorkshire ahead of 2013, Brooks has played in eight Roses Championship matches, winning five and drawing three.
“Those sort of games bring the best out of me,” he said.
“I want to be involved in the big games. I’ve got a good record against Lancs, and that’s something I will be able to take with me.
