Ian Saxelby, a right-arm seam bowler, secured his first professional contract towards the end of the 2008 season after impressing Gloucestershire during a trial period. He has played for England Under-19s and on his first-class debut in 2008 helped save a Championship game against Middlesex batting at No. 11.
He took 20 wickets at 31.00 during 2009 before dislocating his shoulder climbing out of a swimming pool that winter. He suffered a second dislocation playing in a friendly at Worcestershire and required surgery, missing the entire season.
On his return, he enjoyed a profitable 2011 with 49 wickets at 31.20 and with several senior players departing Gloucestershire, suddenly became the most experienced bowler in the county's attack as the 2012 season began.
Saxelby's uncle, Kevin, took over 500 wickets in first-class and one-day cricket for Nottinghamshire from 1978 to 1990. His other uncle, Mark, played 61 first-class matches for Nottinghamshire, Durham and Derbyshire before tragically committing suicide in October 2000.
