Not a day goes by without news from other counties of extended contracts, young players gaining their first contract or comings and goings. As usual, there is a deafening silence from Headingley. There must be some activity but supporters are being told nothing. The website is full of adverts for international matches in 2018 and even 2019, but nothing meaningful about players. Come on, Yorkshire, we are interested.

a lot of the contract extensions were announced before the end of the season.

Lots of fringe players whose futures are unclear eg Thompson, Wainman, Logan, Tatersall, Shaw, maybe Warner and Barnes. Decisions must have been made on these and others.

The point you make, Sid, encapsulates exactly the position. Wainman, Warner and Shaw are contracted players and would be looking for extensions. Thompson, Barnes and Logan were not contracted players at the end of the season but must surely have learned their fate by now. Tattersall is employed on a year by year basis. There is also Callis who, extraordinarily, has been kept on as a 'senior Academy player' for three years.
For some years there has been a practice of informing young Academy players in June or July if they are to be offered a junior professional contract. They are, however, instructed to keep the information to themselves pending an official announcement. This is all very well, but the announcement is often never made.
I am surprised that Marsker claims that most of the contract extensions were announced before the end of the season.
I stand to be corrected, but have no recollection of announcements regarding Lyth, Lees, Leaning, Hodd, Bresnan, Rashid, Rafiq, Brooks, Plunkett, Patterson, Fisher nor most of the junior pros.
They will all be on roll-over contracts and would expect some indication of the club's intentions at the end of the penultimate year of their contract. Surely some of them have reached that position.

Yorkshire are crap at putting out this kind of info aren't they. Anyway, this is my limited understanding of the current situation.


Contracted until end of 2020 season:

Kholer-Cadmore (announced 08/06/17)

Contracted until end of 2019 season:

Lees (announced 04/02/15)
Root (06/05/16)
Rashid (04/06/16)
Ballance (21/03/17)

Contracted until end of 2018 season:

Lyth (annouced 27/01/15)
Willey (19/08/15)
Bairstow (15/12/15)
J Brooks (28/02/17)
Patterson (03/03/17)
Carver (30/03/17)
Waite (30/03/17)
Shaw (30/03/17)
Warner (30/03/17)
Plunkett (10/04/2017)
Coad (19/04/17)
Rafiq (17/05/17)

No idea:

Leaning (last announced contract ran out end of 2017)
Tattersall (2017)
Bresnan (2016)
Hodd (2016)
Fisher (2016)
Wainman (2015)
H Brook (length of contract never revealed)

Senior Academy

Callis
Thompson
Barnes

Announcement today clarifies the position of some of the junior players. There is no mention of Callis, a senior academy player for three years, nor of Thompson, last year's academy captain. There are now a number of senior academy players. I find this a worrying trend. Players in this category are paid much less than junior professionals. Indeed, they receive little more than pocket money and must rely increasingly on parents. This may save the club a few bob to spend on a plethora of fleeting overseas signings, but is hardly encouraging for loyal local boys. The academy proper appears to have only five players, whereas in the past it has had up to 12. Only one scholarship boy (George Hill) has been raised to academy status. Are we trying to run our junior sides on the cheap ?

Website lists Thompson, along with Jared Warner, as junior pro's.

Mentions he will be returning to play for Pudsey St Lawrence in 2018 instead of the Academy.

Thank you, Geoff. I note that they are now listed though no formal announcement was made. Thompson is, of course, too old for the Academy, so a return to St. Lawrence was always on the cards.
Glad that Tattersall now has a second team cap to go with his additional year's contract. I note also in a reported interview with Coad that Wainman is still involved. Warner is 'treading water' as a junior pro. So gradually news of the younger players, at least, is percolating through.

Of course it's great when somebody of real talent comes sailing through into the first team and there isn't any doubt they are going to make the grade. It would be brilliant though if someone such as Tattersall could battle through against the odds and make it.

I must make a point of watching him play in 2018, terrific if he is pushing for a spot in the first team, though that might mean plan A wasn't working.
