Andrew Gale says he is encouraged with Yorkshire’s first half of their Specsavers County Championship campaign.

The White Rose have won two, lost one and drawn four of their seven matches so far, and they sit fourth in the Division One table, the same position they have finished the last two summers.

Coach Gale’s side are next in action against struggling champions Surrey at Scarborough, starting on Sunday, and are taking advantage of a week away from action by having two days of training at North Marine Road today today and tomorrow.

“We’ve been decent without being good. We’re improving,” he said. “With the bat, I think you can see we’re going in the right direction. But we’ve got to be more consistent.

“As I’ve said before, when we’re in a position of strength we have to hammer it home. That’s what the best teams in the league do – what Championship-winning teams do.

“I feel we’ve been robbed of a few results by the weather and have probably lost a bit of momentum with that. You go to Guildford (for a draw against Surrey earlier this month) and it’s stop start and we weren’t quite on it.

“We lost a good game of cricket last week against Warwickshire. but we’re in a good place halfway through.”
