NBC Denis Compton Award 2003
The early stages of Tom Lungley's career were blighted by injury but Derbyshire stuck with him and 2007 turned out to be a golden summer for the home-grown quick bowler. He passed 50 wickets for the first time, finishing as the county's leading wicket-taker, and was awarded the Player of the Year award along with a new two year contract.
He signed for the county in 2000 and soon caught the eye with some impressive performances in one-day games, taking 19 wickets at 16.84 in 2001. His 4 for 13 against Nottinghamshire in a Twenty20 match resulted in him collecting the NBC Denis Compton Award for the most promising young player in 2003 but his injury worries struck soon after. A week after being named on the ECB Academy shortlist his season was ended by a knee problem, which he was unable to completely shake off for several years.
In 2009 he picked up career-best figures of 5 for 27 in Derbyshire's rout of Leicestershire in the Twenty20 Cup, and at the end of the season extended his Derbyshire career into its 11th year. Yet after a season that yielded 19 wickets at 33.15 he was released.
