Yorkshire Cricket Club appoints Guy Fawkes as new chairman

Guy Fawkes

Yorkshire Cricket Club has made Guy Fawkes its new chairman as it seeks to restore its reputation.

The club is caught in a row over its response to the racism experienced by former player Azeem Rafiq.

But officials hope the decision to appoint a “safe pair of hands” in Mr Fawkes will deflect a lot of the criticism.

“Mr Fawkes will put a rocket up the executive committee,” explained club spokesperson Lorraine Fisher, 34.

“He has a fine reputation for trying to shake things up, and we expect his appointment to go with a bang with staff, players and supporters.”

Mr Fawkes said: “I’m bowled over by the appointment, and expect to ignite some new, inclusive policies.”
