Michael Vaughan To Maintain Links With Yorkshire

Former England captain Michael Vaughan will maintain his links with his former club Yorkshire when he takes on a number of new roles for the 2010 season.

Vaughan, who led England to victory in the 2005 Ashes, retired from cricket in 2009, moving into broadcasting and art but he is set to return to his roots at Heaingley, where he made his name as a player.

He will be assisted Yorkshire in player recruitment, particularly overseas players and he will also act as a mentor to new Yorkshire captain Andrew Gale.

“I’m delighted that Michael has agreed to continue to work with us," Martyn Moxon, Director of cricket said.

"I am very keen to utilise his extensive experience to help us to develop our exciting young talent.”
