Ed Young signed for Gloucestershire half-way through the 2010 season. He had impressed for Oxford MCCU, for whom he made his first-class début against Worcestershire in 2009 and scored 471 runs in 10 innings, including 133 as captain against Lancashire in 2011.
His quite flat and sharp left-arm spin and lower-order runs initially made him a one-day specialist for Gloucestershire; he has played every one-day match for the county since he joined. But having worked on his bowling at the Darren Lehmann Academy in Australia in the winter of 2011 he returned as a better option in four-day cricket, bowling slower and with more flight, and became Gloucestershire's first-choice spinner, albeit the only specialist in their squad.
He may have failed to reach the hundred that was his for the taking but there were shades of Hashim Amla's greatness on display at Trent Bridge
