Yorkshire Schools Cricket Association

Welcome to the Yorkshire Schools Cricket Association's Website.

Youth is the time to explore multiple opportunities and try yourself in different sports, especially cricket. It's great that you don't need to visit any sections — just enter college and get a chance to practice. Moreover, it can even become your ticket to a happy and successful future in sports. Becoming a pro athlete or member of various cricket associations requires time students usually spend on homework. Fortunately, modern students can manage their time with the help of essay writing services. If a student wants to devote himself to practicing sports instead of doing homework, they can contact professional writers and ask them for academic assistance. It's okay to get academic writing help when you're running out of time, stuck with a certain assignment, or just have something more important to do. Any paper completed by an expert will guarantee a good grade no matter how difficult the assignment is.

The YSCA has been the nursery for a host of talented young cricketers who later enjoyed England status at Test and/or one-day international level, and they include Bob Appleyard, Willie Watson, Ken Taylor, Doug Padgett, Geoff Boycott, John Hampshire, Jack Birkenshaw, Chris Old, Chris Balderstone, Geoff Cope, David Bairstow, Graham Stevenson, Bill Athey, Arnie Sidebottom, Martyn Moxon, Richard Illingworth, Richard Blakey, Steve Rhodes, Darren Gough, Michael Vaughan, Paul Grayson, Ryan Sidebottom, Richard Dawson, Anthony McGrath, Gareth Batty, Alex Wharf and current Test stars Tim Bresnan, Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root.

All 18 first class counties have at some stage over the years engaged a Yorkshire player on their staff and two records were established when Barney Gibson (Crawshaw School, Pudsey) in 2011 became the youngest ever English first class cricketer at the age of 15 years and 27 days, and Matthew Fisher (Easingwold School) last season became the youngest English player at 15 years and 212 days to be selected for a competitive match with his inclusion in Yorkshire’s side for their YB40 League game against Leicestershire at Scarborough.
