Derbyshire will be represented by developing talents at the upcoming ECB Super Fours and the Bunbury Festival, as the Pathway continues to impress. 

Derbyshire Under 18s players, Harry Moore and Yousaf bin Naeem, have been selected to play in the Midlands Team, coached by Head of Talent Pathway, Daryn Smit, in the Super Fours, which begins today (Sunday 16 July) and runs until Friday 21 July at Loughborough.

Pathway graduate, Archie Harrison, captained the Midlands side to the ECB Super Fours finals last season, before making his first team debut in the Metro Bank One Day Cup in August 2022 and earning a first professional deal at the end of the season. Mitch Wagstaff has also previously played in the tournament, which continues to be a showcase for Derbyshire’s young talents to show what they can do against the best prospects in the country.

Moore and bin Naeem were part of a strong Pathway presence in the Second XI this week, with Wagstaff and Harrison also impressing as Chris Highton’s side chased down 267-7 inside 54 overs to win at Belper Meadows.

Wagstaff top-scored with a match-winning 116, putting on 96 with Bin Naeem, who himself made 51 from 56 balls. Harrison scored 34 in the first innings and also claimed 2-15 before Nottinghamshire declared.

Fellow Pathway youngster, Jake Green, has been selected for the Bunbury Festival, which which will again take place at Loughborough from Sun 30 July until Friday 4 August.
