Marlon Samuels.
Just been reading on BBC sport about Derbyshire's approach for Marlon Samuels.
I must admit I am glad that this deal is not going through. I think he is a bit of a 'loose cannon', and would not be sure he would have been a good influence on the youngsters. Also, a three year deal for a 36 year old must have represented a massive risk, especially at the figures Mr Samuels was quoting as being offered.
Derbyshire's subsequent press release, that they are now looking at different targets is also ...
Chris Grant moves on
Chris Grant has stepped down as chairman in pursuit of ECB election:

After six years at the helm, it is fair to suggest the club is financially in a far better position than when he first took tenure.  Certainly, there has been some marked improvements to the ground facilities into the bargain.

On field activities have been mixed.  After the early dismissal of John Morris and an unexpected promot ...
BEST ELEVEN FROM OVERSEAS
Looking forward to the new season and thinking about the overseas players. I am not sure if we have covered this topic before but my best eleven from overseas would be as follows:

               Chris Rogers
                 
               John Wright

               Peter Kirsten

          &n ...
One more batsman needed?
With the new season rapidly approaching, I thought it might be time to canvass opinion from other DCCC supporters.

Do you think, like me, that we are at least one experienced batsman short?

Would you look for any other additions to the squad?

This guy Smit keeps being mentioned, but at 32 and never having played at County level, do you think he may be the answer? Apparently, he bats, bowls and can keep wicket. any thoughts.

Would you 'call for Chesney', if no one else is available?

With Broom leaving...
the batting line up needs two more names in my opinion, to replace Chesney as well.

I wish Broom all the best, but I was never convinced. It could be best for all parties to move on.
Hardus Viljoen signs
On a three year deal. You can't argue with his stats and at his height and pace, should cause plenty of problems in div 2.

This signing won't have been cheap, so well done to the club for the ambition shown.

My finger is on the membership button...
AJ Leaves
All change now then. Club statement says "leaving to persue other opportunities", the usual sports club statement that says something, but means nothing.

Thanks AJ, best of luck in whatever you do next.

I expect Dino will end up taking over as academy coach, though in the present sporting climate that's a bit of a poisoned chalice.
fixtures.
I must admit they aren't the best fixtures in the world, but I suppose we a due to go with out a out ground.
Unlucky me !!!!!
As Victor Meldrew would say, 'I don't believe it'.
For the first time in years, I book a holiday abroad early. The fixtures for 2017 come out, and it turns out I won't be in the Country for the Royal London cup final at Lords. Damn!!!!
World Cup
So we are to get a semi-final in next year's Women's World Cup and seven other games. We are promised discounts on tickets for members, but no details of prices yet. I hope the ICC, I'm sure they will set ticket prices, do not think they can milk the cash cow again and end up ruining the tournament like the did for the men's competition in the West Indies. Despite what the organisers hope the majority of spectators will be locals, not globe-trotting cricket supporters.
I'm looking forward to se ...
