Memorable Moments

A fixture steeped in history and tradition, Queen’s Park has often been the scene of some truly memorable Vitality Blast moments between the Falcons and Yorkshire Vikings.

The winning streak in Chesterfield began in July 2017, when a 28-ball 42 from Wayne Madsen, and three wickets from Imran Tahir helped the Falcons to a three-run victory.

The ground witnessed a thrilling contest in 2018, when Derbyshire hit the winning runs with just one ball to spare.

Matt Critchley struck the winning boundary off Tim Bresnan, on his way to a scintillating 38 from just 17 deliveries, while Godleman led the way with an unbeaten 71.

Ravi Rampaul had earlier taken 4-19 to limit the visitors to 166-8 from their 20 overs, as the Falcons extended their streak to three matches.

Just as it did a year prior, the 2019 contest went down to the final over with Godleman (70 not out) and Critchley at the crease.

With five balls to spare, Derbyshire’s five-wicket victory was confirmed when David Willey bowled a wide down the leg-side.

In 2022, Leus du Plooy etched his name into the history books, smashing 18 of the required 19 runs to defeat Yorkshire Vikings in the final over, sending the sold-out crowd into raptures! That was after George Scrimshaw (3-20) and Mark Watt (3-29) had made a big impact with the ball, the latter bowling a double-wicket maiden during his spell.

Last season, the Falcons registered their biggest ever T20 victory, the winning margin being 144 runs. Derbyshire posted 212 for four, with Haider Ali (59), Leus du Plooy (66*) and Brooke Guest (39*) producing brilliant knocks.  Guest and du Plooy sent Chesterfield into raptures as the pair plundered 31 runs off the last over of the innings, then the Derbyshire bowlers put in an outstanding shift with the ball to bowl Yorkshire out for just 68.

Derbyshire’s newest recruits Pat Brown, Aneurin Donald, Mohammad Amir, David Lloyd and Ross Whiteley are already onboard for next season. See the new Falcons in action at Queen’s Park as Derbyshire aim to win another T20 match at this picturesque venue against Yorkshire Vikings.
