The Whitby native used to turn out for Scarborough, and admits there would be no better stage than a Yorkshire versus Lancashire clash at a jam-packed North Marine Road.

Lyth commented after chief executive Mark Arthur admitted it’s the club’s intention to try and plan the Roses Championship encounter in at Scarborough after it was cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“It would be fantastic if we could hold the Roses match at Scarborough in 2021,” admitted Lyth, who has just returned from a spell with Pakistan Super League side Sultan Multans.

“I’ve said it before, but all the players, staff and officials at Yorkshire love coming to Scarborough each year.

“I can’t think of many better settings than a full house at North Marine Road and I’m sure the atmosphere for a Roses match would be even better.

“I’m sure both sets of players would be buzzing for it and hopefully it can be sorted.”
