Matthew Taylor (Senior Academy)

Squad no.

In late 2017, Academy director and second XI coach Ian Dews said Taylor was a “Tremlett esque” fast bowler in reference to the towering former England quick Chris Tremlett, an Ashes winner no less.

No doubt, 22-year-old opening bowler Matthew would love to emulate that achievement!

Taylor, from Wakefield, made his second-team debut in 2015, less than three weeks after he had first represented the county’s Academy side.

He has played age-group cricket for Yorkshire at under 13s, 14s, 15s, 17s and 19s.

His second-team best of 4-44 came in the first innings of a Championship win over Leicestershire at York midway through last season, although he didn’t open the bowling on that occasion.
