Over the winter, multiple Derbyshire players will be representing various clubs across the globe. Some individuals have already started their winter campaigns, and we will take a look at how they are doing so far.

Sam Conners

Conners continued his impressive form in New Zealand for Napier Old Boys Marist Cricket Club, following up recent spells of 3-18 and 2-30, with a 4-16 display against HNCC Reynard Health Supplies Premiers. However, his side were bowled out themselves for just 63, leading to a 52-run defeat.

Mitch Wagstaff

On debut for Rockingham Mandurah Cricket Club, in a two-day game over back-to-back weekends, batter Wagstaff made 13 at the top of the order. He also sent down five overs of leg spin, conceding 14 runs.

The Derbyshire batter made 45 on his second appearance for the Club, opening the batting against University, hitting three fours and one six. Rockingham-Mandurah were bowled out for 267 and will be looking to make an impact with the ball on Day Two, this Saturday.

Harry Came

Came is currently touring Kenya with the MCC, where they will play eight fixtures over two weeks. The batter top scored with 48 in a nine-wicket victory, while he has remained an important player for the side, as they maintained an unbeaten run.

Sarah Glenn and Bess Heath

Sarah Glenn’s stint with the Brisbane Heat came to an end as she travelled back from Australia at the start of November. During her five-match stint in the Big Bash, the leg-spinner claimed six wickets, including best figures of 4-23.

Glenn’s final wicket was a collective Derbyshire effort, as Heath completed the stumping off her teammate.

Heath remains with the Heat and has so far made nine appearances, claiming two catches and two stumpings, as well as hitting the winning runs to earn her side a huge victory over Adelaide Strikers at the weekend.

Both Glenn and Heath have been named in the England squads which will tour India this December, with the Derbyshire-born duo set to play in the IT20 series, while Heath has also been named in the Test squad.

With the pair involved in the England limited overs’ squads, don’t miss the opportunity to see them in action at The Incora County Ground as they take on Pakistan Women in May 2024!
