Profile

A whippy seam bowler with a high action who has the ability to extract bounce from a surface, Newby is another product of the Lancashire Academy system. His first-team appearances for Lancashire were limited at first and he was one of the first players to switch counties under the newly-introduced loan system in 2005, when he moved temporarily to Nottinghamshire. Finding a consistent place among healthy seam options at Old Trafford continued to be a problem as he entered his late 20s.
