Gary Craig Wilson

A former MCC young cricketer, Gary Wilson, the Irish wicketkeeper, signed for Surrey in 2005 as cover for Jon Batty. In 2005 he featured in eight Second X1 matches hitting a highest score of 56. He looked impressive behind the stumps, claming 32 dismissals which included 26 catches and six stumpings. He has also featured in the under 19's World Cup in 2004 and 2006 then made his way into regular first-team action for Ireland. However, due to Niall O'Brien's presence, that wasn't often with the gloves and he found a specialist middle-order role. It has been harder work securing a county starting berth.
