This is the latest in an occasional series on players who have represented both Yorkshire and at least one other county but excluding overseas cricketers. Paul Dyson looks at the 20 cricketers who played for the White Rose county as well as Lancashire. They occur in chronological order and the focus is on each player’s career with the Red Rose county, their time with Yorkshire having been previously detailed in other sources.

A total of 20 players have worn both the White and Red Roses on their sweaters but only seven have done so since the First World War.

Despite being Yorkshire’s first official captain, Roger Iddison was still able to play for Lancashire during his tenure of office, there being no registration rules at the time. His career with ‘Yorkshire’ and Yorkshire CCC ran from 1853 to 1876 and he played for Lancashire in 16 matches spread over six seasons from 1865. An effective all-rounder, he scored 621 runs and took 56 wickets. The first century of his career, an innings of 106, came in his second season against Surrey at The Oval.
