Moxon confronts angry Tykes fan

Moxon's side next take on Warwickshire in the Championship

Yorkshire coach Martyn Moxon was involved in a heated confrontation with one fan after losing to Surrey in the Friends Provident Trophy on Monday.

The supporter shouted at Moxon after a batting collapse saw Yorkshire lose.

The director of cricket and the fan had a five-minute exchange while surrounded by Headingley stewards.

"I think it's a disappointed member speaking to a disappointed coach and he wanted an explanation and I gave it to him," Moxon told BBC Radio Leeds.

"We get disappointed about things that happen just as much as spectators do and he was giving his opinion.


"I explained my situation and thoughts to him and I think we went home happy."

Chasing a modest target of 185 in what started out as a 47-over match, Yorkshire were cruising on 63-1.

They then lost five wickets for only five runs in 28 balls, as they lost by 63 runs under the Duckworth/Lewis method.

Moxon added: "I don't think there was any problem at the end of the day.

"He accepted what I had to say and that's the end of the matter as far as I'm concerned."
