Paul Borrington made an inauspicious start to first-class cricket, bowled for 4 leaving a straight one on debut against Leicestershire. Despite being born over the border in Nottingham, in joining Derbyshire he followed in the footsteps of his father, AJ Borrington, who played for the club between 1970 and 1982.
Borrington's opportunities were limited until he made his maiden hundred (for Loughborough UCCE against Worcestershire) in May 2008 and by the end of the summer he had gained a regular spot in the county first team.
Consistent performances, and a desire by his county to hold on to a young talent that had been nurtured by them, led to further extensions to his contract with Derbyshire in 2009 and 2011, keeping him with the county at least until 2014.
Borrington looked ready to secure one of the opening slots at the start of the 2011 season, only to suffer torn ankle ligaments during fielding practice. Once fit again he struggled at first to regain his place in a settled side but played in more than half of the Championship matches in 2012.
