Yorkshire part company with entire coaching staff in wake of racism scandal

Long-serving director of cricket Martyn Moxon and head coach Andrew Gale have left Yorkshire, along with the entire coaching team, the club have announced.

Moxon had been signed off from work due to a stress-related illness while Gale had been suspended pending a disciplinary hearing since 9 November as the fall-out continues in the wake of the Azeem Rafiq racism investigation.

A statement from Yorkshire read: “We can confirm that Martyn Moxon, Director of Cricket, and Andrew Gale, First XI Coach, have left the Club today (3 December), in addition to all members of the coaching team.

“A new Director of Cricket will be appointed imminently, alongside a new coaching team which is being recruited. The backroom medical team, external services provided by Pavilion Physiotherapy Clinic, has also left the Club. An interim medical team is also in the process of being appointed.”
