Andrew Gale Signs New Yorkshire Deal

Andrew Gale has penned a new 3 year deal at Headingley, which will see him play his cricket for Yorkshire until at least the end of the 2010 season.

The 23-year-old left-handed batsman was a regular in Yorkshire one-day side in 2007. Consistent runs in the 2nd Team saw him included in the Club's LV County Championship side towards the end of the season, a spot Andrew wants to secure for himself next summer: "Hopefully next year I can get a bit more exposure in the LV County Championship. With our overseas player being a bowler there is a place up for grabs in the middle order, so I am determined to come back to pre-season fighting fit and full of runs and ready for selection. I know I can fill that spot and do well."

Andrew continued, "I’m really enjoying my cricket with Yorkshire and delighted to sign this new deal. Martyn and Goughy have brought a lot more energy back into the Club and reignited the passion to put the white rose on and to be successful. I really enjoy playing under Goughy, we couldn’t ask for a better captain."

Yorkshire chief executive, Stewart Regan, said, “It is brilliant news that a talented young batsman like Andrew has committed his future to Yorkshire. He’s a talented player and I’m sure we will all see him score lots of runs for the county over the next three seasons.“
