FOOTS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR BBC EX_SPURTS (FORMER DRIPS)
The omission of Mark Footitt from the BBC county team of the season is quite simply, inexplicable. Looking at those selected there are only two representatives from division two. One of them is Michael Hogan. A fine bowler it must be said,but how on earth can anybody seriously believe he has been more influential than Foots. He has fewer wickets for a start,so what exactly is the criteria for basing such decisions?. Obviously not performance.

More than any other sport,there are things that ha ...
Ben Slater signs new contract
News has emerged that Ben Slater has signed a two year contract to the end of 2016. I think this is a good move from GW and gives Ben the chance now to continue to learn and fine tune his game. As i,ve said before,I believe he is a very talented lad and i,m absolutely certain he will make a fine player for Derbyshire over the next several seasons. Good luck to him and may he continue to prosper.
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
We have had 10 years to fixc the 20 over problem and never come close. That needs fixing faster than 5 years because that is when you get the crowds
