The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce the signing of fast-bowler Mickey Edwards on an 18-month contract.

The right-arm seamer, who has represented New South Wales and Sydney Sixers in Australia, will join up with the Club on pre-season tour to Cape Town in March. As a British-passport holder, Edwards will be registered as a regulation 2 county qualified player.

Yorkshire CCC’s Managing Director of Cricket Darren Gough said: “We are delighted that Mickey has opted to join us for the next two seasons.

“We’ve been tracking him over the winter and are excited to be welcoming him to our side. He’s got pace, height and skill and will present a real challenge for batters in all formats.

“Mickey completes our strong bowling line-up for the season and we are delighted with the strength and depth that we have. I’m sure our members and supporters can’t wait to see our attack in action soon.”

28-year-old Edwards said: “I’m delighted to be joining Yorkshire and can’t wait to play for one of the biggest counties in English cricket.

“It’s a new chapter in my cricketing career and I’m excited to get going. I’m looking forward to meeting up with the lads in Cape Town next month.

“I want to fight for a spot in the England team across all formats and am confident that being at Yorkshire is the best place for me to achieve that.”
