Yorkshire have signed up six players to the 2021 Academy. Here, head coach Richard Damms talks us through each player’s role, ability, aims and potential.
“Boothy is a right-arm opening bowler from Huddersfield who swings it and has a good bouncer. He has been with us for two or three years, and he’s developing nicely.
“He played a little bit of second-team stuff last year and got involved with the ECB’s Best v Best Under 18s game at the back end of last season. He’s also wintered well.
“We’re hoping to see him push for some more second-team cricket this summer and to be a consistently good performer, as we are with all the lads.
“One thing we are looking for with Ed is for him to be a bit more aggressive – to develop a bit of that white line fever.
“He’s a lovely lad, but we want him to be a bit more aggressive with every ball that he bowls.”
