The Vitality Blast returns to Derby this Friday night, with a mouth-watering home double-header for the Falcons. 

Tomorrow will see the East Midlands Rivalry resume, as Notts Outlaws visit The Pattonair County Ground, with a 7pm start, while Sunday will see Derbyshire face-off with Lancashire Lightning in our Family Fixture (2:30pm start).

With two points from as many Vitality Blast matches so far, Billy Godleman’s side come into the match against fierce rivals Notts, having already beaten Yorkshire Vikings in the competition.

With so much history between the two sides, Friday’s match will see old scores settled as the Derbyshire Falcons play their first T20 at The Pattonair County Ground this year, it is not one to be missed.

Sunday’s match against Lancashire will be our family fixture, and will see a variety of activities to suit anyone. Whether young or old, a long-time fan or a first-time visitor, there will be something for you at our home Vitality Blast fixtures this summer.

Pit your skills against the bowling simulator and feel what it’s like to face fast bowling at The Pattonair County Ground with the BatFast Simulator, or enjoy Cricket Factory mini-games and a host of giveaways, including our free autograph collection sheet. Join us in front of the Air IT Elite Performance Centre at the end of the game and collect your Derbyshire autographs.

New for 2019 there will be more bars around The Pattonair County Ground than ever before for Vitality Blast matches. From small pop-ups to larger quick-pour bars, we have listened to your feedback and improved our refreshment offering for 2019.
