Wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Tattersall has today signed a new three-year contract with the club.
Tattersall, 24, penned a provisional one-year extension for 2019 mid-way though the 2018 season, but has now put pen-to-paper on a deal which will keep him at Emerald Headingley until the end of 2021.
The Harrogate-born, former England Under 19, made one first-team appearance in 2013, scoring a duck against Glamorgan in a one-day fixture, before being released at the end of 2015. However, he impressed after being invited back to play in the second team at the end of 2016 and likewise last season, earning himself a one-year deal for 2018.
A smiling Tattersall was delighted to have secured his medium-term future and told yorkshireccc.com: “It takes a lot off your shoulders and you can go out and work hard through the winter without worrying about whether or not you’re out of contract at the end of the following season.
“I’m glad I can put that period to behind me and get down to some hard work. Obviously, last season was brilliant and hopefully I can now push on. Three years is a good period of time to have at the club and hopefully I can help the county win some games of cricket.”
