Yorkshire’s Disability sides are ready and raring to go for 2022.

The county’s trio of teams, the D40 hardball, the S9 softball and the Development XI, all get their campaigns up and running during what could be described as magic May.

The D40 side have been training at Cuckney Cricket Club in Mansfield, the club where Yorkshire and England seamer Alex Jervis has played, though summer training and home matches will take place at Higham CC in Barnsley.

They have welcomed a new cohort of players, with hearing impairment, to add to their learning and disability players.

The squad head south for pre-season games against Middlesex and Essex in mid-April before an opening National League fixture against Derbyshire on May 1.

New players to watch out for are Edward Denton, Cameron Sweeney and Luke Riley along with England duo Jervis and Robert Hewitt.

The S9 side are using Headingley as their training base and are confident they can mount a bid for silverware this summer.

They also hope to mix established players with new ones to the sport, with Cameron Groves and Luke Messenger players to keep an eye on as they begin their campaign against Cheshire on May 8.

Competition for places within the Development team drives the need for players to move between teams, gain hard ball experience and/or find form outside of the County Championship, which starts on May 29 at long time supporters Haxey Cricket Club.

Joe Raw has been appointed as their new captain.

Sponsors Premier Engineering and Woodstock Cricket remain a huge part of the Yorkshire Disability family, and new players are always welcome.
