Who should Derbyshire sign?
I notice Ollie Freckingham and Jigar Nail have been released by Leicestershire.  I know the former has been injury prone recently, but I am less sure about Naik, who has been off the radar for some time.  A few years ago he was seen as a potential England spinner.  Whether he can recapture that form again is the question.
Chesney departs
I wish all the best. Very inconsistent, but capable of excellent innings. He's probably due a fresh start elsewhere
Looking forward to 2017 ?????
Here endeth the 2016 season for DCCC. Like all supporters, i'm glad to see the back of it. From the start of the season I think we all new that the CC div 2 was going to be very difficult for us, but I don't think anyone would have predicted just how badly it finished. The T20 looked for a period like we might qualify, but then we crashed out of that. The competition which most disappointed me was the Royal London cup. Two wins and two no results had us top of the group at halfway, I saw the fir ...
Harvey Hosein.
Congratulations to one of the few 'shining lights' of this awful season.  Well done HH on your maiden century.

MEMO to Mr Grant........If you haven't got this lad on a minimum 4 year contract, do it now. If Matt Critchley merits a four year contract, this lad deserves six or seven. He is quality, his glovework is good and his batting, as the last three innings confirm is getting better and better. Nobody wants this lad to be another one that got away!!!!!!
A half decent day I suppose,having elected to bowl first. Must have been thrilling to watch at two and a half runs an over.Glad I wasn,t there. Will be there tomorrow though,for better or worse.

There,s still danger for us with Clark still batting and few people would be overly surprized if Worcs add another hundred or so in the morning.Maybe we,ll bowl them out early and set about establishing a first innings lead. We can,t avoid bottom spot no matter what happens,only avoid finishing withou ...
Gary Wilson joins
Wicket keeper batsman for Surrey and Ireland so clearly no mug, maybe not a hugely exciting signing but I do think he could be a good addition if used properly.

My vision is that he plays as a specialist batsman in 4 day cricket and can play as a keeper-batsman in the shorter stuff. Does this open the door to getting an overseas bowler rather than a batsman?
Gary Wilson signs
This looks a very good signing to me, and would have been higher on my list of possibles if I'd thought he was going to be available. Very capable wicketkeeper, very good batsman who is able to bat anywhere in the middle order and doesn't seem to be too precious about having to keep wicket, plenty of leadership experience and by all accounts a mature and sensible influence in the dressing room. Most important to me is that he's a player with experience of winning and there's precious little of t ...

So another one has gone. Looking at the club statement, it seems there has been quite a bit of talking going on behind the scenes. Judging by the rules the that currently apply. Leicestershire have done nothing wrong, but it all sounds a bit sneaky to me.
With DCCC having invested heavily in this lad at the academy, plus the way it's been done, plus where he is going to, I for one will not be wishing him well for the future. I also seem to remember his tweats about his pride when DCCC gave him ...
Time for change.
The consensus from people I've spoken with is that members are tolerated and not really wanted. We're kept in the dark treated with contempt and have our intelligence insulted

Club seem only to be able to do the media centre. Unable to negotiate contracts or appear anything less than amateurish

My expectations for the season weren't high but never expected to be this bad. At this moment I'm thinking why put myself through another season of this and just not renew. Sports meant to be ups a ...
Their overseas player might fall but look at ours we can't criticise them
They've also announced a new coach and assistant coach ams signed 2 new players already
Will the player from Lancs be any good? I've no idea but they signed Delport for all one day cricket too

Meanwhile we're dithering along no sign of a coach or news of Durston and Hughes. No explanation why Rutherford left.  Just in the dark.  Communications by the club worse than ever. There can't be fans in the whole cou ...
