"Meanwhile, it is understood that Yorkshire have made an approach to sign Worcestershire batsman Tom Kohler-Cadmore, who scored a 50-over century against them on Friday.

Kohler-Cadmore played under 15s cricket with Yorkshire alongside Leaning and Coad. His family still live in Hull, and he is out of contract at New Road this winter."
Sounds like a good move to me. TKC looks a good prospect, has Yorkshire links and would fill an area of our squad we probably need to strengthen. Given our record of developing England players and competing for trophies in all formats (3 white ball SFs in the last two years in addition to the Championship successes) I would imagine Yorkshire are a pretty attractive proposition for players at most counties; we don't even know that Yorkshire were interested in at least two of the players that we apparently 'missed out on' over the winter...

It would be interesting to know when the approach was made incidentally; I would have thought an approach from a bigger county might be quite a big motivating factor, with his century against us perhaps the inevitable result...

Again showing why we're interested, dynamic one day opener

He also has the advantage of being right handed, I've always preferred to have a LH & RH batsman opening the innings.

Worcestershire have had a stream of Yorkshire-born players on their books over the last few years. One who might not be so clearly remembered is Shaaiq Choudhry from Rotherham. Since there may not be too many readers of the Cotswold Journal on this forum, I thought the following link might possibly be of interest. It's one of those reminders that the "fringe" players on the county circuit are never very far away from having to think laterally.

I'm not sure it would be a good move for K-Cadmore. He wouldn't get near our Championship side, would he?

Now Joe Clarke....

It would depend on a few things like England availability, who we get as overseas, Ballances form and England recall and whether he wants to come back to Yorkshire.

Warwickshire also interested apparently.

Presumably he would be competing for a place in our champo side with Leaning?

It would be interesting if he were to be in competition with Leaning for a place. When they were 15 they opened together for Yorkshire boys. They progressed to the North of England side, but only Leaning played for England in that age group. He was generally considered a better prospect.

I would have thought K-C much less polished as a batsman than Jack Leaning, but he certainly gives it a biff. In Championship terms I have been more impressed with Joe Clarke (the best player of his generation, but short of runs in 2017), Tom Fell and Brett D'Oliveira, who also gives his team a legbreak option. We will remember him batting beautifully at Scarborough.

The others have no Yorkshire connections, of course.

Worcs are looking increasingly good. If they go up I'd have thought our chances of making this signing will diminish considerably.
