Profile

Gary Wilson, a staple in Ireland's side, also forged a solid county career with Surrey for more than a decade until he upped sticks and joined Derbyshire in 2016 as a growing number of rivals began to gain precedence both with the bat and with the gloves. He remained at the county for two seasons before being released from his contract a year early to return to his native Ireland and join the recently-established first-class system.
