Greg Cork is in contention to make his first-class debut as Derbyshire travel to the New Road to face Worcestershire in the county’s final fixture of 2016. 

The 20-year old paceman, who claimed eight wickets in the Second XI’s Friendlty versus Leicestershire last week, has been included in John Sadler’s 12-man squad.

Tom Wood, who made his first-class debut against Leicestershire at The 3aaa County Ground last week, retains his position in the squad, while batsman Neil Broom is unavailable due to the birth of his third child.
