It has been a bad couple of years for the county who made an even bigger loss in 2010 after hosting a neutral Test match between Australia and Pakistan, in which very few supporters turned out.

The county have recently undergone work on a new pavilion which came at a large cost to the Headingley based club. In 2011 Headingley was not awarded a Test match against a touring side.

A club statement said: “2011 attendances were hugely encouraging, with over 12,000 people attending the Friends Life T20 match against Lancashire and a sell-out for the one-day international against Sri Lanka. 2012 will be a much better year for the club financially with the return of a full international match schedule.”

The county have recently signed Pakistan fast bowler Rana Naved for the 2012 Friends Life T20 campaign.
