England’s county club Yorkshire on Tuesday re-signed the off-spinner Jack Shutt for the upcoming domestic season. The 23-year-old made his debut for the club in the Bob Willis Trophy this summer and impressed the side.
He played for the side in three matches and also recorded his personal best figures of 2/14 in the tournament. Later, he also went on to play four matches in the Vitality T20 Blast.
“I’m massively proud to have made my first-class debut for Yorkshire,” Shutt said. “There’s a lot of tradition that goes with the Club and it is a real honour to be able to play cricket for my home county.
“My performances were a bit up and down. Some good performances and some not so good, but I think I’ll learn from both of them. Hopefully, next year I’ll get more opportunities and can be a bit more consistent.” he added.
Director of cricket Martyn Moxon added: “Obviously he’s had the limited opportunity in this shortened summer to play in the first team and he’s shown he’s someone who’s continuing to develop.”
“The great asset that Jack has is that he spins the ball and we need to invest some time in him to help him develop. He’s certainly someone with huge potential.”
