In the latest edition of our #WeAreDerbyshire Stories feature, Derbyshire scorer John Brown talks about his cricketing life following his move to the county in the 1970s.
The Cricket Derbyshire Foundation’s Oral History of Cricket in Derbyshire project, which is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, has recorded recollections from over 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 seventeenth edition, Brown, who has been scorer at the club for nearly two decades, also discusses his involvement in the recreational game on and off the field prior to joining Derbyshire.
