Yorkshire County Club has announced the contract extension of seam bowler Ben Coad. The seamer has scalped 210 wickets in his First-class career. He made his debut for Yorkshire in June 2013. 

The 23 year old has cemented his place in the club as one of the leading pace attacks. He made his breakthrough in 2017 when he scalped 53 County Championship wickets. 


Ben Coad delighted with the extension


 “It means a lot to be able to extend my contract with the Club. As a Yorkshire lad I want to help this club get through the tough times and back into the position it should be."

"I love the responsibility I’ve had of leading our attack, and I’ll always try and lead by example on and off the pitch. If the lads ever need a helping hand, I’m always there but we’ve got a great team so it’s a very easy task to lead this attack."

“On a personal note, I just want to take as many wickets as possible and win games for the Club. We are desperate to return to division one and want to win some silverware.”


Yorkshire CCC’s Managing Director of Cricket Darren Gough on Ben Coad 


“We are delighted to have secured Ben’s services for an additional two years and are looking forward to seeing him continue to perform for Yorkshire."

“Despite suffering the frustrations of an injury that kept him out for a chunk of this summer, Ben came back and showed his skills both in the One Day Cup and Championship. We believe that, with another good winter in his legs, Ben can flourish again in 2023 and play a big part in our push to return to division one.”
