Adam Lyth signs contract extension at Yorkshire

Adam Lyth has signed a contract extension which will keep him at Yorkshire County Cricket Club until at least December 2015.

Opening batsman Lyth, who made his First-Class debut in 2007, is the 10th player to sign a new deal this summer with the Club. In his six years with Yorkshire, Lyth has played 78 First-Class matches amassing 4596 runs at an average of 38.30.

The Whitby-born batsman will open the batting for Yorkshire on his home ground, North Marine Road, Scarborough, when the White Rose take on Durham in the top of the table clash starting today in the LV= County Championship.

We are delighted that Adam has signed a contract extension. He has been a mainstay of our batting department for a number of years now and his experience in top flight domestic cricket is vital in our progression. He is a naturally gifted batsman, who is capable of crafting crucial innings. His influence on the wider group will be beneficial in our development over the next few years.”
