2020 is the year in which Derbyshire County Cricket Club marks its 150th anniversary. With foundations built on heritage, community and loyal Members, the club thrives on its support.

During these challenging times for all, we want to help keep everyone associated with the club and wider community positive and engaged. We’re in this together and Together, We Are All Derbyshire.

Our Members, supporters and stakeholders are vitally important to the club and we want to give back where we can – whether that be providing you with new and exclusive interviews, re-living the club’s greatest moments, or hearing about your favourite moments.

The cricket community is well-renowned in sport for its spirit and togetherness. As part of the new Together, We Are All Derbyshire campaign, we’ll be encouraging all supporters to get involved via social media, email, or phone to talk about cricket and engage with each other.

We’ll be producing a variety of content tailored to what supporters want to read, watch or discuss.

  • Is there a player you wish you’d seen in Derbyshire’s history? Would you like to know more about their career?
  • What’s the most memorable fixture you watched live?
  • Is there a game you’d like to re-live in the Twenty20 era?
  • Is there a current player you’d like to find out more about?
  • Is there an out-ground you’d like to know more about?
  • What happened on your birthday? Do you share it with a Derbyshire player?
  • What’s your favourite away venue?

As well as your suggestions, we’ll be providing further;

  • Interviews with current players
  • A history of Derbyshire’s home ground
  • Features on winning moments
  • Statistical reviews & heritage articles
  • Polls and your favourite moments
  • Video clips & photos

Message from our Captain

I wanted to take the opportunity on behalf of Derbyshire County Cricket Club to reach out and wish you well at this difficult time.

As much as we will miss the chance to get bat on ball at the start of the season,the sport must put the safety of everyone involved first.

At Derbyshire, we thrive on the backing of our supporters and it’s been so rewarding to see the strides we’ve made. Cricket will be back when it’s safe to do so and the whole squad can’t wait to get out there and entertain supporters.

In the meantime, the club are actively encouraging Members and supporters to engage on social media, online at, over the phone, or via email. Cricket brings people together and now more than ever, we can harness that joy for the game to help keep people connected at this time.
