We’re sorry… Freddie dropped the ball

Oops. This may be the last time we let Freddie the Falcon help with our pre-NatWest T20 Blast mail out.

With just a month to go until our first home NatWest T20 Blast, we sent a postcard with a personalised shirt to contacts on our database, promoting our great offers for the upcoming competition.

Unfortunately, Freddie got a little too excited and some people will have received a postcard with the wrong first name.

His extraordinary eyesight, which has seen him win our interval Freddie challenge on a record number of times, has let him down, on this occasion.

He has been sent to the indoor nets to face 1,000 balls from the bowling machine to get his eye in ready for the NatWest T20 Blast, which starts in Chesterfield on Saturday 8 July.

We apologise for any inconvenience our error may have caused, but hope everyone who received our special mail out enjoyed the surprise of having their surname printed on a Derbyshire shirt.

We would like to thank all supporters for their continued support and we hope we see you all at a NatWest T20 Blast fixture this summer.
