Yorkshire County Cricket Club Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Vaughan, said:
We are aware of the unacceptable social posts made by a trustee of the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation (YCF). Discrimination has no place in our game, and we are pleased that the YCF board, as fellow members of the Yorkshire Cricket family, acted quickly in removing this individual from their position with immediate effect.
Note to editors:
The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation is the official charity and community arm of Yorkshire County Cricket Club. It is a separate body from YCCC, both legally and in the Board who govern it.
