Shaw set for Gloucestershire spell

Gloucestershire have signed Yorkshire seamer Josh Shaw on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old right-armer has come through the academy at Headingley and appeared in two NatWest T20 Blast matches last summer.

Shaw, whose father Chris made 61 first-class appeaances for Yorkshire in the 1980s, now hopes to impress in all formats at the Bristol County Ground.

“This is a great opportunity for me to continue my development as a professional cricketer,” said Shaw, who has represented England Under-19s.

“I’m looking forward to once again working with Richard Dawson, who coached me at Yorkshire a couple of years ago before his move back to Gloucestershire.”

Gloucestershire head coach Richard Dawson added: “It’s great having Josh for a season-long loan from Yorkshire.

“He’s a bowler of great potential and will add competition to our squad, whilst also giving him an opportunity to develop his game in all formats.

“Yorkshire and Martyn Moxon have been brilliant in allowing him to join up with us so early in the year giving him an opportunity to get settled with the squad before the season.”
