A quietly powerful presence

Solihull-born Rob broke into Warwickshire’s senior side in 2019, scoring a maiden championship century and establishing himself as a regular in the Bears’ red-ball team.

Fast forward four years and in 2023 he was a mainstay of the Warwickshire line-up, opening the batting alongside Al Davies.

He scored a total of 1,280 runs across all formats, including 447 in the Vitality Blast. Only Sam Hain hit more T20 runs for the Bears.

“I’m delighted to be playing for Warwickshire. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to continue representing the team and be a part of this exciting squad of players.”

Rob Yates

Rob progressed through the Warwickshire age-groups from under 10s, and has impressed coaches with his batting of composure, technique and application.

In 2021, his game continued to blossom. Yatesy’s 793 championship runs, including four centuries, put him top of the batting averages and formed a huge pillar in the Bears’ glorious title triumph.

Those runs also earned him an England Lions call to Australia where again he impressed. Still only 24, Yates is set to be a key member of the squad for several seasons to come.
