The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce the signing of left-arm spinner Daniel Moriarty on loan from Surrey.

Moriarty will be available for selection for the LV= Insurance County Championship game against Gloucestershire at Headingley, starting on Sunday. He will then be available for the next three four-day fixtures through July. There is scope for an extension to the 24-year-old’s stay with the county.

Born in Reigate, Moriarty has played for South Africa at Under-19 level – his mother’s birth country, playing a Test and an ODI.

A tall, accurate left-arm spinner, Moriarty then broke into Surrey’s first team to impressive effect during the curtailed 2020 summer.

He claimed a five-for on first-class debut, against Middlesex in the Bob Willis Trophy, and followed that up with match figures of 11 for 224 to help seal victory over Sussex in the final round. He finished as Surrey’s leading wicket-taker in the Vitality Blast with 17, as they lost out to Nottinghamshire in the final. That was the second-best haul in the competition and best by a spinner.

Darren Gough, Managing Director of Cricket for Yorkshire County Cricket Club, said: “Dan is a brilliant addition to the team and has impressed at Surrey.

“With Yorkshire’s focus shortly turning to Championship cricket again, alongside the busy Blast schedule, it was important to add another addition to our bowling resources.

“Dan offers up another bow to our bowling attack and a further boost to our Championship campaign.

“Here at Yorkshire, we are always looking to improve our side and we have a talented group of players, with lots of competition for places and opportunities for everyone.”
