Yorkshire County Cricket Club have today awarded 16-year-old seamer Matthew Fisher his Second XI cap.

Fisher, from York, is a key player in the England Under-19s squad and played a massive role in the 4-0 One-day series victory over South Africa.

After awarding the youngster the cap, Yorkshire first team coach Jason Gillespie said: “Matthew is an outstanding talent and richly deserves his second cap for his superb performances over the year.”

The fast bowler made his senior début for Yorkshire in June last year against Leicestershire and at 15 years and 212 days became the youngest cricketer to play in a competitive county game.

Gillespie added: “He has massive talent and has a tremendous future in the game. He bowls with good pace, but his main attribute is his control, he’s learning all the time and we are looking forward to developing his game over the next few years.”
