Yorkshire's Brooks Signs One Year Deal

Yorkshire County Cricket Club square

Published at 7:11am 28th February 2017.

Yorkshire Cricket Club's Jack Brooks has signed a one year contract extension, keeping him at Headingley until the end of the 2018 season.

The strike bowler joined the White Rose in 2012, and his current contract was due to expire at the end of this season. 

The 32 year old took 60 wickets in 2016, taking his career tally to 360 at an average of 26.59, resulting in him being named Specsavers County Championship Bowler of the Year.

Brooks said:

"I’m very happy. I wasn’t looking to leave and I’ve had a really good time since I joined a few years ago. My career has gone a lot better than I thought and it’s a dream to spend another couple of years here.

 This will be my fifth season and I’ve probably played some of the best cricket of my career up here since I arrived from Northants and it’s just great to extend that for another season.

 I like playing with this set of lads, they’ve all been brilliant. The fact that we’re always up there and challenging for trophies is great too; that’s important for professional sportsmen.

I feel as if I’ve been adopted by the North, I’ve spent a lot of time up here and I’m still really enjoying it.”
