Profile

Tall seamer Tim Linley was a graduate of the MCC's UCCE programme and represented British Universities in 2004. He joined Sussex for the 2006 season but after playing just one match, against Sri Lanka, he was released and headed northwards to Surrey. It took him some time to establish a first-team place, but he survived Chris Adams' clear-out and in 2010 began to find more opportunities on offer as Surrey rebuilt their standing in the domestic game. In a squad packed with pacier talent, Linley's line bowling proved very useful and he helped Surrey win promotion in 2011 with his best season, taking 73 first-class wickets at 18.34. While he has struggled to hit those heights since, Linley has been a model of consistency during some tough times for Surrey. He lead the way with 37 wickets as the club were relegated from Division One in 2013.
