Somerset County Cricket Club have today come to an agreement that will see Dom Bess join Yorkshire County Cricket Club on a one-month loan deal.
The temporary move will give Dom the opportunity to play in a maximum of four Specsavers County Championship matches for the White Rose County.
The 21-year-old from Devon will join Yorkshire in time for their County Championship match at Kent which begins on Tuesday May 14th.
Somerset CCC Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry explains the reasons behind the move. “Due to limited opportunities thus far for Dom within the County Championship, alongside his desire to play First XI cricket, he will be joining Yorkshire for a month with our full backing.
“It’s important to us as a Club to ensure that we are providing opportunities that support the needs of our player’s development and the Club’s mid-term needs. This opportunity provides Dom and us with exactly that.”
After agreeing the move, Dom said: “We all agree that I need to be playing First XI cricket. Opportunities are limited here at the moment, so I went on the loan list.
“It’s in the best interests of myself and the Club that I’m playing First XI cricket, and this is a big opportunity. It’s a different environment and hopefully I can come back with a lot of confidence and help to win some games for Somerset.”
