Topic: Jagger is set to bail out Yorkshire County Cricket Club with 3million! Return to archive

Exclusive by Martin Rogers


ROCK legend Sir Mick Jagger is set to bail out crisis county Yorkshire with a shock 3million investment.

The Rolling Stones frontman is believed to have made moves to help out the stricken club, which has been left in severe financial trouble and owing millions to its creditors.

Jagger's love of cricket has been well documented but if he puts in his own cash it will be the first time he has become directly involved in the game's administration.

The man known in the rock world as Rubber Lips is close friends with former England stars Ian Botham and Allan Lamb and was known to pay visits to the team dressing-room.

His involvement could not have come at a better time for Yorkshire, who were left facing the wall before the end of the season.

The future of Headingley as a Test venue has been cast into doubt after a series of poor attendances and the financial problems have continued to mount.

A special meeting on Thursday will allow members to vote for or against allowing an extension of the current 5million overdraft limit.

An against result could have seen the county go bankrupt - just two days before they play Somerset in the Cheltenham and Gloucester Trophy final at Lord's. An insider told Mirror Sport last night: "I do not think there will be any trouble attracting investors to Yorkshire and there are some high-profile names who are definitely interested.

"It is well known that Mick Jagger is a cricket lover and would not have wanted to see financial problems threaten the club's future.

"Nothing has been finalised but Yorkshire are very hopeful that an arrangement can be reached."

Champions Yorkshire have had a terrible time trying to defend their title and are now floundering at the bottom of the county championship, with only one win - against Lancashire - this season.
