Derbyshire claimed an eight-wicket win over Glamorgan in a Second XI three-day friendly at Belper Meadows CC.

James Kettleborough hit an unbeaten 69 to guide the hosts to a comfortable victory while Sam Conners also claimed three wickets on the final day.

Unbeaten on 58 overnight, Graham Wagg continued his defiant innings as he combined with Christopher Matthews for a 99-run partnership to accelerate Glamorgan onto 242-7.

Wagg eventually fell to Conners for 127 before the bowler then removed Kazi Syzmanski without scoring as the visitors set Derbyshire 135 to win.

Glamorgan started well in their defence to remove Chesney Hughes (3) in the second over before Kettleborough led from the front with his match-winning 69 from 105 balls.

There were short cameos from both Scott Palumbo (34) and Anuj Dal (24) as Derbyshire eased to an eight-wicket victory at Belper Meadows.

Derbyshire are back in Second XI action on Monday 25 June, when they travel to Burnopfield CC to face Durham in two back-to-back Twenty20 matches; starting at 11am.
