Born: October 17, 1975, Shotley Bridge, Durham
Neil Killeen was born in Shotley Bridge, made his debut for Durham at the age of 20 and has always remained a one-club man.
A former England Under-19 International, his professional career spanned 15 years and included over 350 first team appearances.
Killeen was a fixture in Durham's limited overs side for many seasons and often ended up as the side's leading wicket-taker. He played a key role on the road to the Friends Provident Trophy win in 2007, combining superbly with Ottis Gibson.
The former seam bowler took his badges and moved into coaching upon his retirement in 2010 and now helps to develop the next generation of Durham cricketers. Killeen worked as the club's bowling coach last season but has since been appointed as Second XI coach following Ali Maiden's departure to the England Women setup.
He also spends his winters working with the Potential England Performance Programme.
