Profile

The tall seamer Tim Linley was a graduate of the MCC'S UCCE programme, and represented British Universities in 2004. He joined Sussex for the 2006 season but after playing just one match, against Sri Lanka, he was released and headed northwards to Surrey. It took him some time to establish a first-team place, but he survived Chris Adams' clear-out and in 2010 began to find more opportunities on offer as Surrey rebuilt their standing in the domestic game. In a squad packed with pacier talent, Linley's line bowling proved very useful and he helped Surrey win promotion in 2011 with his best season, taking 73 first-class wickets at 18.34.
