Fast bowler Jared Warner will re-join Sussex County Cricket Club on loan for the remainder of the Specsavers County Championship season, beginning with their match against Middlesex starting on Sunday.

The 22-year-old will begin his second loan spell of the season at the 1st Central County Ground, Hove, having seen his first spell curtailed earlier than planned due to a side strain.

Warner made his First-Class debut in a drawn match for Sussex against Glamorgan earlier in the summer and impressed with first innings figures of 3 for 35.

Known for his pace, the seamer will be available for the final four Championship fixtures.

Warner said: “I’m looking forward to it. I enjoyed my time earlier in the year and I'm just looking forward to hopefully playing some more first team cricket.

“I did okay and really enjoyed it. If I can get a couple more games under my belt, I think it will really improve my game going forward to next year.”

Warner has aspirations of breaking into the White Rose's red-ball bowling attack and believes opportunities like this will help him leading into the 2020 season. The Wakefield-born quick, who has captained the Club’s Second XI on numerous occasions, made an appearance for the Vikings in the final Royal London One-Day Cup game of the campaign in May.

“Obviously I’m desperate to play for Yorkshire so anything I can do that will help my cause is what I want to do.”
