Batsman Billy Godleman joined Derbyshire in 2012 on a two-year contract.

The talented opener earned his first county contract at the age of 17, becoming the second-youngest first-class debutant for Middlesex, behind team-mate and current England bowler Steven Finn.

Camden-born Godleman was identified by David English as a future England player when aged 15 at a Bunbury Festival. He went on to represent England schools at Under-15s, 16s, 17s and 18s level – and was selected for the Under-19s squad in 2007, which he made his mark with an unbeaten 149 in an ODI versus Pakistan – the highest Youth ODI innings for England.

That summer he made 842 first-class runs at 38.27, including a maiden century, against Somerset at Taunton. He passed 50 in his first five first-class innings and a place in the squad for the 2008 Under-19 World Cup followed.

After amassing 736 runs in 2008, Godleman struggled to find a place in the Middlesex first XI the following season, prompting a move to Essex in August 2009 before signing with Derbyshire in 2012.
