Playing history

The golden years

Yorkshire were the dominant force in the County Championship until the Second World War, often dismissing lesser sides without recourse to a third day's play. The immaculate Herbert Sutcliffe formed a famous opening partnership with Surrey great Jack Hobbs for England, while Wilfred Rhodes and George Herbert Hirst rank with the finest all rounders the game has ever produced. A youthful Len Hutton scored a then world record 364 against Australia at the Oval and returned after the war, despite a serious arm injury, to become England's first professional captain and prove himself perhaps the most complete opening batsman since Hobbs. Herbert Sutcliffe (born November 24, 1894, Summerbridge, Harrogate, Yorkshire, England; died January 22, 1978, Cross Hills, Yorkshire, England) was arguably the greatest opening batsman in cricket history and undoubtedly one of the greatest players of any type the game has known. ...

After Surrey's unbroken hegemony in the fifties, the sixties saw a new Yorkshire team emerge and dominate the first class game.

Ethnic minority players

Yorkshire has a large ethnic minority population and, for many years, the inability of players from the ethnic minority communities to force their way into the 1st team has been a controversial issue.

However, it has manifestly not borne fruit and the low number of players (and spectators) from the ethnic minority communities continues to be a source of embarrassment.

It is a curious fact that three Yorkshire players Stanley Jackson, Len Hutton and Michael Vaughan have captained England to success in The Ashes yet none of them have been club captain at Yorkshire.

From 1883 to 1959 inclusive, Yorkshire always had an amateur club captain. The extent of leadership given by these gentlemen has long been a subject of discussion. Hawke and Sellers are generally held to have been autocratic and decisive, but in fact both relied heavily on sound professional advice. At the other extreme, Wilfred Rhodes is supposed to have been the de facto captain from 1920 to 1930, but it is a fact that Major Arthur Lupton took the diplomatic lead when a row erupted between Yorkshire and Middlesex during his tenure. Wilfred Rhodes (born October 29, 1877, North Moor, Kirkheaton, near Huddersfield, Yorkshire; died July 8, 1973, Branksome Park, Bournemouth) was one of the greatest cricketers of the twentieth century. ...


Lord Hawke famously said, at the Yorkshire Annual General Meeting in 1925: "Pray God, no professional shall ever captain England. I love and admire them all, but we have always had an amateur skipper[14] and when the day comes when we shall have no more amateurs captaining England it will be a thousand pities."[15] In view of this, it is perhaps surprising that, when Arthur Lupton retired at the end of the 1927 season, Hawke was one of the sponsors of the suggestion that Herbert Sutcliffe should turn amateur and become the Yorkshire captain. In the event, there was sufficient opposition to the idea amongst the Yorkshire committee and players (some of the latter felt that Wilfred Rhodes, as senior professional, had a prior claim), that the proposal was dropped.[16]
