England's Jonny Bairstow pens new three-year deal with Yorkshire

  • Jonny Bairstow signs a new three-year contract with Yorkshire
  • The 29 year old will stay on at the club until 2021

England wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow has signed a new contract with Yorkshire.

His three-year deal will keep him with the county until 2021.

Jonny said:

"I’m very pleased to have signed my extension. It has taken a little while to get it sorted with a few bits going on, but I’m really pleased to have signed the extension.

“Hopefully we can build on last year because there are still things we need to do in order to get back to the top of the County Championship. We did quite well in one-day cricket but at the end of the day we want to be winning competitions.”

 

 

Director of Cricket Martyn Moxon said:

“It’s another high profile, high-class, world-class international cricketer pledging three further years to the club and it is fantastic news.

“He’s a great role model that we can use for our younger players. His ability on the field is unquestionable and, when he comes back to play for us, he’s a match-winner for us. It’s fantastic to have Jonny connected with the club and, although we might not see too much of him in playing terms, for him to be associated to and connected with the club is great.

“He’s a talented cricketer that people want to watch. He’s an entertainer and also such a quality player. He’s proved himself to be world class and it’s important he’s playing for Yorkshire now and nobody else.”
