Jake Libby impressed good judges with a carefully-assembled hundred on Championship debut against Sussex at Trent Bridge in a largely inconsequential match at the end of the 2014 season at Trent Bridge. Libby came the first person for 68 years to make a century on debut for Nottinghamshire and revealed an unflappable temperament and decent technique against a Sussex attack including Chris Jordan and Steve Magoffin.
Libby, who graduated in Sport and Exercise Science from Cardiff Met earlier in the summer, had made a first-class debut for Cardiff MCCU against Glamorgan in a prelude to the professional season in early April and, a native of Devon, later played for nearby Cornwall before attracting Notts' interest.
Hopes of advancement in 2015 were curtailed when he ruptured a cruciate ligament in the close season playing for Latrobe in Tasmania, and did not make a Championship return until September. This time there was no achievement to cherish, merely a second-ball duck. His recovery in 2016 took in a loan spell at Northants where he made a hundred against Derbyshire, and a September hundred back at Notts against Durham, but runs were in short supply the following season despite ample opportunities as Notts' opening-batting problems seemed as embedded as ever.
