In the latest edition of our #WeAreDerbyshire Stories feature, we hear from former batsman Chris Adams about his life in cricket, which started as a youngster in Staveley, Chesterfield.
The Cricket Derbyshire Foundation’s Oral History of Cricket in Derbyshire project, which is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, has recorded recollections from almost 200 participants.
These include former and current players, and focused on audio-visual reminiscences about cricket at every level within the county, from grassroots to the Test arena.
It is this fabric of players, coaches, volunteers and supporters which all contribute greatly to make up cricket in Derbyshire.
In this third edition, following on from Geoff Miller last week, Adams discusses his beginnings in cricket through to being recognised and signing his first contract with Derbyshire.
