DERBYSHIRE V LEICESTERSHIRE CC2 23/09/14
The end of the road is now firmly in sight with just four days cricket left between now and next April. This is a depressing period between now and the new year,unless you happen to like Christmas,which as far as the shops are concerned has already started. I look forward to the return of Cadbury,s creme eggs whose return at least suggests Spring is within sight.

The weather looks to be turning much more unsettled as the week progresses,though I very much doubt we will require four days to wi ...
Players we should try and sign.
I understand Sam Kelsell has been released from Notts.

Another staffs lad in the same age range as Messrs cotton and Taylor.

I understand he is highly thought of locally and seen as a talented batsman, and has scored 3 centuries for notts seconds.

Hope he is on our radar as he certainly seems to be worth a punt.
SURREY V DERBYSHIRE CC2 15/09/14
At least Surrey are now out of the running for promotion,which may assist our own cause. The Oval is traditionally a quick pitch with good bounce and carry and usually favours seamers. This is Surrey,s first CC2 match at the ground since June 28th which renders previous matches null and void in terms of trying to judge how it might play on Monday.

We have some repair work to do and prove the Glammy match was nothing more than an unfortunate blip. We have slipped to third bottom and could fini ...
CROSS LEAVES CLUB
It has been announced that wicket keeper Gareth Cross has now left the club and will be replaced by Harvey Hosein for the last two CC2 matches.

I did think a few weeks back he might have been awarded a contract for next year but the news of Tom Poynton well on the way to recovery raised a question mark. The other question mark was a lack of runs. He had a couple of telling innings in white ball cricket but most of the time he struggled to make any impression. He is at an age where any improv ...
GLAMORGAN V DERBYSHIRE CC2 09/09/14
For us it,s the same squad as Worcs except for the addition of Pujara,who is set to make his debut. The most likely casualty from the previous match would seem to be Chesney with the remainder taking their place in a rejuvenated team.

We are aiming for six of the best,having beaten Glamorgan on the previous five occasions the teams have met. Not since 2003 have the Welshmen tasted victory,so the bragging rights are very much with ourselves. In making it six of the best we would also be record ...
A FEW SUNDAY THOUGHTS (NOTHING ELSE TO DO!)
Looking out on a beautiful autumn Sunday,it brings home the insanity of this current cricket schedule. To put it into some sort of perspective,between the beginning and the end of the season,Derbyshire will have clocked up a total of 31 weekend days without cricket.

That is a staggering figure and clearly illustrates the folly and missed opportunity of the present system. Since the end of July,our schedule includes a grand total of 2 Sundays. That,s it. July saw us play a total of 24 days cr ...
GW- "SQUAD IS NOW ALMOST COMPLETE".
That is the word from our leader in an article in the Derby Telegraph. It will not include Matty Higginbottom who has been released. I suspected he might struggle to convince GW he was worth retaining. Perhaps under different circumstances he may have been afforded another year,but at 24 he has perhaps reached a performance level he cannot go beyond. He was by no means a failure but this was always going to be a defining season for him and with only limited appearances his future was always in d ...
(Another) 5 year plan
I think the five year plan idea has just been a straight transfer from the commercial world.  It is a reasonable time to set in order to apply short and medium term goals to try and meet certain key objectives for the club.

I think you could read the objective of being established in division 1 in a couple of ways.  It could mean that we have stabilised ourselves after a couple of years or so in the top flight.  I suspect that might well be the aim.

It is true that the acade ...
SHIV THAKOR SIGNS FOR US
Great news that we have another Shiv who has signed for us in front of other counties. He has had injury problems but looks to be a great prospect as an all-rounder. I hope he stays fitter and plays more games than J.C.  Laughing
DERBYSHIRE V WORCESTERSHIRE CC2 31/08/14
I think today put paid to any realistic chance of winning this match. I had a nagging doubt we might let Worcs off the hook and so it transpired. Having missed a few chances yesterday,our bowling was mediocre today and we paid the price. Having reduced a team to 191 for 6,they really shouldn,t be scoring close to 400,though the pitch did play somewhat easier today. I thought Waino might have been more influential,but rarely did he look like taking wickets.

We made an excellent start to our se ...
