Bradford sign Matt Milnes, a Kent native

After establishing a strong record during four seasons in Canterbury, Seamer relocates to the north.

Matt Milnes, who will join from Kent on a three-year contract, is Yorkshire’s first domestic acquisition under the new administration.

A number of players will quit the team this year. David Willey and Tom Kohler-Cadmore have already confirmed transfers to Northamptonshire and Somerset, respectively. Steven Patterson said on Thursday night that he had been told he would leave at the conclusion of the season and resigned as club captain.

However, the acquisition of Milnes, who has made an impression in a variety of forms since joining Kent and Nottinghamshire in 2018, is an indication of support for Yorkshire’s new leadership. Ottis Gibson has been in charge of that; he was appointed head coach at the start of this season following the widespread staff dismissals that followed Azeem Rafiq’s claims of an institutionally racist culture at the club throughout his tenure as a player.

Matthew Milnes is a top-tier talent that Yorkshire is thrilled to have secured, according to interim cricket director Darren Gough. He is an extremely skilled fast bowler who will provide Yorkshire’s seamers with some terrific competition.

“He’s demonstrated his prowess with such a red ball, and we have no doubt that he will be a force in our Championship squad and provide another excellent option for our white-ball teams.

This year, we’ve learned how crucial it is to have a strong group of fast bowlers because of the need for them to occasionally rotate and take a break from bowling in in order to keep everyone as as fresh as possible and prevent injuries.

Milnes declared: “With Kent, I enjoyed four successful and enjoyable seasons, and I will always be appreciative to Paul Downton, Matt Walker, and my colleagues for their help throughout the years.
