Derbyshire have signed left-handed batsman Matt Lineker on a Summer Contract for the 2011 season.
Lineker, 25, has played in the Second XI Trophy for both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire and has performed consistently in the ECB Premier League in recent years, scoring 800 runs in 20 innings at 44.44, including two centuries, in the league in 2010.
"Matt has been a standout performer on the Derbyshire Premier League scene for several years now and he deserves this opportunity to show what he can do in county cricket," said John Morris, Derbyshire's head of cricket. "If Matt can make a success of this opportunity he will be a fine example for other local players to follow."
