Player of the Month: September Nominees

2017 Player of the Year, Alex Hughes, enjoyed a successful September scoring 246 runs in three Specsavers County Championship fixtures including a career-best 142 in the win over Gloucestershire.

The all-rounder started the month with 44 in the draw against Glamorgan, he then went on to score 60 across two innings in Derbyshire’s second four-day win of the season against Sussex.

In the final game of the season, Derbyshire recorded back-to-back wins as Hughes top scored with a career-best 142 against Gloucestershire.

Hardus Viljoen

Fast bowler, Hardus Viljoen, bowled Derbyshire to victory in the Specsavers County Championship fixture at Hove after claiming 15 wickets in the match.

He claimed figures of 7-80 in the first innings and 8-90 in the second, becoming only the fourth player ever to take 15 wickets in a match for the Club, as Derbyshire recorded their second four-day win of the season.

Wayne Madsen

Wayne Madsen reached 10,000 career first-class runs in a successful September, most notably hitting 121 in the side’s victory in the final game of the season.

During the Gloucestershire fixture, the handy off-spinner also returned figures of 1-21 as Derbyshire bowled Gloucestershire out to claim their third win of the competition.

Earlier in the month, Madsen hit 25 and 31 in the win over Sussex and 20 in the rain-affected draw against Glamorgan.
