|Cc game 3 at Northamptonshire 1st May '16
|Good thing Thakor and Palladino got some runs to steady the ship after a collapse could be key runs in this game after a good start we fell away and Northamptonshire must have fancied getting us out for 200. Top effort by the two mentioned
|Just saw Martin Guptill at Lancashire next season. I thought we would have first shot at getting him back. He could win games on his own and with him in the team any score would be chaseable. I would sooner have him for 6 games and then let Rutherford play the rest. I know we need an all rounder and Neesham fits the bill but I am disappointed Guptill wont be in Derbyshire colours. Surely he would come back to us like a shot? He would be a dream to see him back
|Cc game 2 v Glamorgan 24th April '16
|Just heading down now. Good to see Palladino back with wickets
|Derbyshire ccc are not Derby County
|It seems the club tweets are increasingly assuming we are all Derby County fans.
I support Derbyshire county cricket club and personally couldn't care less about Derby County FC.
|Cc game 1 at Gloucestershire 17th April '16
|Nor sure where Spire is so will start the season off.
Gloucester got thrashed by Essex and dont look very scary to be honest but I would take Rodrick from the team who is good I dont know how we will go but this will be a good test to see if we are going to compete this year
Good luck Derbyshire
|Luke Fletcher on loan
|Joining us for a month,according to reports. Pity we couldn,t get hold of him for the season but maybe that,s expecting a bit too much. I like Luke Fletcher as a bowler.He has a knack of taking wickets when you need one and combines his talent with a liberal dose of aggression. I,m a bit surprised he,s remained at Notts,considering he,s rarely a regular member of the team,but in the short term he should do a very useful job for us. A good signing and gives a much needed boost to our attack.
|...and now for the real stuff
|That,s it then.Pre season,which seems to have lasted forever (a bit like my just completed house move)is now over and the season is about to begin.
As always,there have been optimistic noises coming from all directions but "friendly" matches are often misleading and reading too much into their statistics is dangerous,as we have found in the past.
It rarely pays off to be too optimistic and over the past few seasons it hasn,t taken long for reality to snuff out any thoughts of sil ...
|For the first time for some time I have checked out the website, and I see a local company has taken over the top floor of the media centre for offices.
I can see the financial benefit of the club, but on reading part of the article it states:
'great amenities for our growing team on site and ease of access with parking for our client’s, staff and insurers'
Also the comment we are creating a outdoor amphitheatre
Now my question is, is this going to further reduce facilities for membe ...
