MARYTN MOXON is set to join the Yorkshire board in place of former county colleague Michael Vaughan.

Former England captain Vaughan retires by rotation and has not offered himself for re-election.

Director of cricket Moxon is seen as the perfect replacement, with Vaughan’s media duties placing increasing demands on his time.

The appointment is expected to be rubber-stamped at the annual meeting.

Vaughan, 40, did not attend any of the six board meetings at Yorkshire last year, although he did discuss board business prior to each with club chairman Colin Graves.

Yorkshire will be seeking to appoint a new chairman to replace the outgoing Graves, having already stated that the candidate will come from the existing board. Possible contenders include Steve Denison, the highly-respected non-executive director.
