  • Josh Sullivan is a leg-spinner from Leeds who once claimed 5-2 whilst playing for Yorkshire’s Under 14s side.

    The older brother of White Rose Academy left-arm spinner Harry, Josh claimed 26 wickets for the Academy and second-team in 2019 and then claimed four wickets in three second-team friendlies in 2020.

    He has represented the county at Under 14s, 15s and 17s as well as the Academy and the second team, the latter across the last three seasons.

    In three years of Academy cricket between 2017 and 2019, he claimed 65 wickets with a best of 5-73 early last year in a Yorkshire Premier League North victory over Beverley Town.

    Sullivan is seen a big spinner of the ball whose early development has been more advanced in red ball cricket rather than white.

    He represented the ECB’s Elite Player Development North Under 17s side in 2018, although had to deal with a stress fracture in his back around the age of 16.

    Sullivan’s aforementioned 5-2 came in a 45-over win over Lincolnshire Under 14s at Scunthorpe in July 2014, with the White Rose winning by five wickets having bowled the hosts out for 85.

    He bowled nine overs, including a fabulous eight maidens.
