YEP Says: Cricket club is bigger than star
ONLY Geoffrey Boycott and Yorkshire County Cricket Club could have such a love-hate relationship that continues to polarise opinion 30 years after the opening batsman, one of the most single-minded players in the history of his sport, played his final innings.
The latest instalment is Boycott’s desire to become a board member of the club while the powers-that-be would prefer him to be an ambassador.
Michael Vaughan used Twitter to implore his Test Match Special colleague to “back down”.
Surely unity is greater than a star player’s last hurrah at Headingley?
