Former Oxfordshire seamer Jack Brooks expressed himself delighted after signing for Yorkshire.

The 28-year-old England Lions player, who announced earlier this month that he was leaving Nothants, has agreed a three-year deal with the Tykes.

Brooks, who played at Tiddington as a youngster, spent four seasons at the County Ground during which he took 118 first-class wickets at an average of 28.95, as well as Twenty20 scalps.

Brooks (pic-tured) said: “I’m absolutely elated to be joining Yorkshire who are one of the biggest clubs in the country.

“They have shown a lot of interest in me over the last couple of years and it was ultimately too difficult to turn down.

“I want to be part of a successful young side that has been built at Headingley. “Yorkshire enjoyed great success in 2012 gaiaing promotion and will certainly be challenging again next summer.”

Martyn Moxon, Yorkshire’s director of cricket, added: “We are really pleased to have acquired Jack’s services.

“We’ve been looking to strengthen our squad to challenge in the First Division of the LV= County Championship in 2013 and believe that Jack brings a great deal of quality to our existing seam attack.”
