With names like Arthur Dolphin and Jimmy Binks in their history, and more recently the fiery David Bairstow and long serving Richard Blakey in their ranks, Yorkshire have a proud tradition of producing top class wicket keepers. There are high hopes that Greg Wood will follow in these illustrious footsteps.
He is a left handed batsman and wicket keeper who has impressed for England U-19s and Yorkshire second XI. He won the Denis Compton award in 2005. Progressing through league cricket and the Yorkshire Academy he was an integral part of the Yorkshire U-17 side that beat Surrey in the final of the 2005 ECB U-17 County Championship.
