ADAM LYTH has reiterated his desire to finish his career as a Yorkshire player after signing a two-year contract extension at Emerald Headingley.

Opening batsman Lyth, who already had a deal running until the end of the forthcoming summer, has now committed himself to wearing the White Rose until at least the end of 2022.

Last season, the now 32-year-old went beyond 10,000 first-class runs for Yorkshire and currently sits on 10,674 for all teams, including England, for whom he played seven Test matches in 2015, and the Lions.

He has set his sights on reaching the 15,000-mark. But, more importantly, he is confident that Yorkshire are on the right track in terms of adding more silverware to their cabinet following back-to-back Specsavers County Championships in 2014 and 2015.

Lyth, who is celebrating a testimonial year at Headingley in 2020, admitted his desire to remain at Yorkshire until the end of his playing days when he last signed a new contract in early 2018 and has now reaffirmed that wish.

“There wasn’t too much negotiation. It was really quick, and it’s fantastic to get this contract sorted,” he said.

“It’s obviously a really important year for myself on and off the field, so to be able to get this done I’m over the moon with it.

“It’s an exciting time for the club, and hopefully we can win some silverware during the next couple of seasons.”
