A seven-year-old Yorkshire fan has applied to be the county's new head coach, following the recent departure of Jason Gillespie.
Isaac Zabrocky, who has Asperger Syndrome and suffers with ligamentous laxity in his wrists, wrote to Martyn Moxon, the director of cricket, stating: "I would like to replace Dizzy as coach. I think I can help us win."
His application was rejected on the grounds of insufficient experience, but it prompted Yorkshire's chief executive, Mark Arthur, to send a personalised reply.
"If you show as much enthusiasm in your school work as you do in all things Yorkshire cricket, then I'm sure you will enjoy a very successful future in whatever you choose."
Isaac has also been invited to write his own match report from the press box at a match next season.
"It's unbelievable that such a big club can care so much about one little fan," Isaac's dad, Rob Zabrocky, told The Yorkshire Post.
"He will definitely be taking up the chance. He has already been planning which match he wants to be doing it for, the Roses match. But we might have to see how busy it is."
