Reece relishing Queen's Park clash

Luis Reece believes Derbyshire and Yorkshire will once again play in front of a special crowd at Queen’s Park, Chesterfield on Saturday 20 June (2.30pm start).

The Falcons will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run over Yorkshire when they meet in Chesterfield, where they have played in front of sold out crowds in each of the last three seasons.

The last two meetings at Queen’s Park have been decided in the final over, with captain Billy Godleman hitting half-centuries both times.

Reece says the players look forward to facing Yorkshire in Chesterfield each year, and is excited to perform in front of a big crowd at the ground once again.

“It’s an incredible atmosphere on both sides,” said Reece.

“The supporters come and give each other banter, they get involved in the game and they are very close to the game, so the players can feel the atmosphere.

“When it’s sold out, it really is a great place to play cricket, the players really thrive on that crowd. We have had so many close games over the last few years and the supporters have fed off that and have left with great memories.

“We love entertaining as players, and they are such a passionate crowd and this year will be no different.

“It’s always earmarked as one of those fixtures you want to play in, and one for spectators to come and watch, so getting a ticket early is massively important, to make sure you can be there to witness one of the spectacles of our season.”
