JACK SHUTT has signed a one-year contract extension to keep him at Yorkshire until at least the end of the 2021 season.

Having committed a further year to the White Rose, Shutt said: “I’m very pleased. I’ve played a little bit of first team cricket now and I feel like I’ve learnt a lot.

"I know what the level is that I need to get to, and hopefully I can improve my game going forward so that I can do well at that level.

“The only way that you can learn is by playing and being around players of that quality, so hopefully this summer will really stand me in good stead going forward.”

The off spinner made his First-Class debut during this summer’s Bob Willis Trophy campaign and went on to play in three of the fixtures, recording a best of two for 14 against Nottinghamshire in August.

“I’m massively proud to have made my First-Class debut for Yorkshire,” Shutt commented.

“There’s a lot of tradition that goes with the Club and it is a real honour to be able to play cricket for my home county.

“My performances were a bit up and down. Some good performances and some not so good, but I think I’ll learn from both of them.

"Hopefully, next year I’ll get more opportunities and can be a bit more consistent.

“If it is more normal next year, it will be better for everyone as we will have second team cricket running alongside the first team so that lads that aren’t in the first-team squad can get a lot of overs under their belt, particularly in red-ball cricket.

"That way you can try to get a bit of form and knock on the door for first-team cricket.

“All I can do is try to improve and take my game forward.

“I know where I want to improve so I’m going to work hard this winter and hopefully come the summer I’m in a good place.

"That way I can be pushing for opportunities."
