Devon Malcolm, Mike Hendrick and David Steele are the latest legends to be confirmed for the Players’ Pre-Season Dinner on Friday 4 March.

Malcolm took 753 wickets for the Club and was part of the Derbyshire side who won the Sunday League title in 1990 and the Benson & Hedges Cup in 1993.

Also an England Test seamer, Hendrick took over 700 wickets across all formats during a 12-year stint at the Club and was named Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1978.

Steele, meanwhile, played for Derbyshire between 1979 and 1981, scoring almost 4,000 runs in the process, having been crowned BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 1975 whilst at Northamptonshire.

The announcement comes after Derbyshire and England legend Bob Taylor was revealed to be attending, as well as Colin Tunnicliffe and Stephen Stubbings.

The Derby-based Siddiqui family from popular Channel 4 show, Gogglebox, have also agreed to attend the unique event.

The Dinner gives supporters the opportunity to dine with the entire first-team squad before they fly out to Abu Dhabi for their pre-season tour, sponsored by Briggs of Burton, the following week.

Guests will be treated to a three-course dinner, prepared by the Derbyshire Experience team, in addition to a special auction containing limited edition Derbyshire memorabilia.

Individual tickets can be purchased for just £45, while a table of ten people can be booked for a discounted price of £350 plus VAT.
