Matt Dunn marked his County Championship debut with a five-wicket haul to inspire Surrey to a seven-wicket win over Derbyshire at Derby.

The hosts had resumed on 35-4, a lead of 77, but were blown away for 99 as Dunn claimed three more scalps to finish with 5-56.

Tim Linley (4-26) also struck twice to complete a maiden 10-wicket match haul.

Jason Roy top scored with 45 as Surrey cantered to their target of 142 to seal their second win of the season.


BBC London 94.9's Mark Church:

"A very good victory for Surrey and a clinical performance on the final day. Derbyshire dimissed for just 99 in their second innings, with Matthew Dunn taking five wickets on his Championship debut and Tim Linley picking up 10 wickets in the match for the first time in his career.

"And after a quick start to their chase of 142 for victory from Jason Roy and Rory Hamilton-Brown, it was left to the experienced hand of Mark Ramprakash to guide Surrey to their target.

"Surrey will be delighted with their performance, Derbyshire diappointed and both sides now turn their attention to the FL t20."
