Domestic career[edit]

Northamptonshire[edit]

Willey started his career playing for his home county Northamptonshire in the County Championship division two. Having come through the ranks at Northampton playing for O.N's and Northants Academy, he got his chance in the 2009 season aged 19 after a good pre season. His first game came against Leicestershire, the first game of the season against one of his father's old clubs. He scored 60 on debut after a good partnership with Andrew Hall,[3] but did not continue this in the televised game against Essex in his first one day game getting out for a duck with a poor shot. His first wicket came in his second first-class against Kent when he had Phil Edwards out LBW. On 8 May he was rewarded with a two-year professional contract after impressing during the start of the season.[4] It was in the Twenty20 that he excelled in, but this time with his bowling taking 3/9 in his first spell against Worcestershire and finished the 2009 competition with an average of 11.30. He appeared alongside Northants teammate Jack Brooks on Cricket AM feature, Brain vs Brawn, in 2010.

In 2013, he helped Northamptonshire to a 102-run victory in a rain-shortened Friends Life Twenty20 Final against Surrey where he made 60 with the bat, then had figures of 4/9, including a match-ending hat-trick to clean up the tail.

In the Scorchers' second match against the Sydney Sixers he scored one run and didn't take a wicket, in a heavy defeat. In the third match against the Melbourne he bowled well, taking two wickets with the ball, before Ashton Agar scored a six to win in the final over.
