Brief bio

Date of birth - 26 May 1976, Shotley Bridge, County Durham
Durham First Class Debut - May 1996 v Northamptonshire (h)


Paul Collingwood once again extended his stay at Durham by another year meaning the club legend will play past his 40th birthday, currently scheduled for the club's four-day fixture against Warwickshire.


The experienced all-rounder overtook Dale Benkenstein to become Durham's highest run-maker, passing the landmark during the victory over Middlesex at Lord's in 2014, and remains an integral part of Durham's outfit in all formats of the game.

Age has proved no barrier to success for Collingwood and he started the 2015 season with another match-winning performance, taking 5/57 in the 2015 curtain raiser at Somerset. A month later, on his 39th birthday, he scored a pivotal hundred to secure victory at Worcestershire.

A three-time Ashes winner who guided his nation to the ICC World Twenty20 title in 2010, Collingwood ended his illustrious international career a year later. He is England's most-capped one-day international player and still the only Englishman to lift a global trophy in the sport.

He has since kept himself in peak physical shape and remains a consistent scorer of runs, a superb fielder and a fine example to the next generation of players at the club.
