Billy Godleman said it’s a huge honour to be appointed new four-day Captain and he can’t wait to lead the side out this summer. 

Wayne Madsen – who signed a new three-year deal this month committing him to Derbyshire until the end of 2019 – announced that he had decided to step down. He was appointed Club Captain in 2012 and led the side to the County Championship Division Two title that year.

Godleman, who was Vice-Captain last year, will now lead the side in the Specsavers County Championship this summer. He says he’s honoured to be appointed and is looking forward to the opportunity to lead the side as we take the Club forward and push for four-day success.
