Profile

A former MCC young cricketer, Gary Wilson, the Irish wicketkeeper, signed for Surrey in 2005 as cover for Jon Batty. In 2005 he featured in eight Second XI matches hitting a highest score of 56. He looked impressive behind the stumps, claiming 32 dismissals which included 26 catches and six stumpings. He has also featured in the Under-19s World Cup in 2004 and 2006 then made his way into regular first-team action for Ireland. However, due to Niall O'Brien's presence, that wasn't often with the gloves and he found a specialist middle-order role. It has been harder work securing a county starting berth as he's been tried in different top-order positions without consistent success.
