In July 2009, Wainwright joined then fellow Yorkshire cricketer, Matthew Hoggard, by signing up with a new sponsor, Woodworm.
In September 2011, Yorkshire County Cricket Club announced that Wainwright had exercised the clause in his contract where he can request to be released, if he is not playing regular first team cricket. In 2012, Wainwright moved to Derbyshire and took a first-class, career best return of 6 for 33, on his debut for them against Northamptonshire. He was released from his Derbyshire contract in August 2015.
