Derbyshire all-rounder, Luis Reece, has been named as the Club’s Player of the Year for the 2023 season.
Reece, who also picked up the Club’s Metro Bank One Day Cup Player of the Year award, was recognised for his record-breaking feats with the bat, as well as his consistency across all three formats.
He broke the Club-record for consecutive first-class scores of 50 or more, with seven, while also became the first player in the history of the County Championship to score four centuries in the same season against the same county (Glamorgan). He finished top of the averages in first-class cricket, with an exceptional 87.33, while more than 600 white ball runs also came from his bat. With the ball, Reece claimed 34 wickets across all formats.
Wayne Madsen took home three awards: Vitality Blast Player of the Year, the Spirit of Cricket Award and the inaugural Members’ Player of the Year Award, sponsored by the Back to the Pavilion Podcast.
