  • Wesley John Durston (born 6 October 1980 in Taunton, Somerset) is an English cricketer who plays for Derbyshire, having previously played for Somerset between 1999 and 2009, and the Unicorns during the 2010 season. He learnt his cricket at Millfield School and is a right-handed batsman and off break bowler. He made his debut for the Somerset Second XI in 1999 and his List A debut for Somerset Cricket Board in the 2000 NatWest Trophy. He made his first-class debut for Somerset against West Indies 'A' in 2002 and made his Championship debut in 2003. He made more appearances in 2005 and was particularly valuable in one day games. In 2006 he became a regular member of the team. His maiden first-class century was 146* against Derbyshire at Derby in 2005. His best bowling in first-class cricket is 3-23 against Sri Lanka 'A' in 2004. Although he did not score a century in 2006 he did get seven Championship scores over 50 and was the leading fielder with 15 catches. He was released by Somerset in November 2009 when his contract expired. In 2010, Durston was selected as one of 21 players to form the first Unicorns squad to take part in the Clydesdale Bank 40 domestic limited overs competition against the regular first-class counties. The Unicorns were made up of 15 former county cricket professionals and 6 young cricketers looking to make it in the professional game.Durston impressed with the bat in the early stages of the competition, and after an unbeaten century against Sussex, he was offered a contract to play Twenty20 cricket for Derbyshire for the 2010 season. After impressing for Derbyshire in the limited overs formats of the game, Durston was offered a full playing contract, and has since become a permanent fixture in both the four-day and one-day Derbyshire sides.
