Reports relating to this case:

  • Cricketer's rejection not race bias

    1 December 1994

    A young cricketer who, when using his own name, was refused a trial with Durham County Cricket Club but was not refused when he used an anglicised name, was not discriminated against on grounds of race, rules a Newcastle-upon-Tyne industrial tribunal (Chair: J D Myers) in Yaqub v Durham County Cricket Club. The two letters requesting a trial, were "dissimilar", said the tribunal, and "required different and distinct answers".
