Yorkshire chief executive Mark Arthur hailed the tireless work done behind the scenes as being integral in the county’s title triumph in 2014.

Arthur saluted the players for all they have achieved on the pitch but also took time to acknowledge the people behind the region’s new stars.

Arthur, who has been in the position two years, said: “I’m absolutely delighted for the players, but also for the backroom staff who have worked incredibly hard over the last few years to build up to this day.

“Nobody has taken anything for granted, they’ve all worked very hard, the attention to detail has been phenomenal and I’m delighted for them.”

He also reserved special praise for the strength of the Yorkshire core running through the squad.

Arthur said: “It’s incredible what Martyn Moxon has put together, along with Ian Dews and Richard Damms; they’ll have a big smile on their faces because a lot of those players have gone through their hands.

“So there’ll be a huge sense of reward in their minds.”

Going forward, Arthur believes the old mantra of success breeding success will mean positive repercussions off the field.

“In sport you want to win trophies, everyone wants to be associated with success and that’s going to help us going forward next year,” he said.
