Cornish opener Jake Libby could not have enjoyed a more productive start to life as a first-class cricketer.
A debut knock of 108 in the LV= County Championship First Division match versus Sussex in September 2014 made the right-hander, aged 21, the first Nottinghamshire player since 1946 to score a debut century.
A productive winter of grade cricket in Tasmania would follow, although the adventure came at a cost in the form of an anterior cruciate ligament injury and subsequent operation.
A product of Callington Cricket Club of the Cornwall Premier League, Libby's first-class debut came for Cardiff MCCU in April 2014 having already gained experience in Minor Counties cricket with his native Cornwall.
Life at Trent Bridge began on a trial basis in July 2014, earning his maiden professional contract on the back of a double-century vs Warwickshire in the Second XI Championship.
