Re. Your Derbyshire County Cricket Club Membership
On behalf of all the players, support staff, the off-field team and the Supervisory Board at Derbyshire County Cricket Club, I hope that you and your family are safe and well.
At the time of writing, I am delighted to say that Derbyshire, under the leadership of Dave Houghton and with standout performances across the team, are currently top of the Bob Willis Trophy North Group.
We are now into a condensed period of Vitality Blast cricket with such positivity around the squad, and I am sure like me, you are looking forward to seeing how the team can continue to develop after a thrilling 2019.
Your Membership Refund
These are unprecedented times for us all and the Covid-19 pandemic has created new challenges against which we must adapt in order to protect the long-term future of the club. While we continue to do all we can to mitigate the impact in the short-term, the full financial effect on the club and the game will not be felt until the months to come.
The club is acutely aware that the effects extend far beyond cricket and you are entitled to a full refund on your Membership, which I hope you will now have received. If you have not received your refund yet, please call the Membership & Ticketing team on 01332 388 101, or email [email protected].
Membership remains the best-value way to watch Derbyshire across all forms of cricket as Head of Cricket, Dave Houghton, continues to build a side which is capable of consistently challenging for silverware.
Next season it will once again include entry to all regular season Derbyshire home fixtures, as well as a number of added Member benefits. While guidance on spectators in 2021 remains uncertain, our Members will come first with priority access to entry at all Derbyshire’s regular-season home games, as well as any knockout-round fixtures.
We will contact you again once Membership 2021 has gone on sale with the Early Bird offer and hope that you will be able to join us again as a Member next year.
In the meantime, for any queries on Membership, do not hesitate to contact us on 01332 388 101, or email [email protected].
As I’m sure you are aware, the club had planned a number of 150th Anniversary events in 2020, including a commemorative match, a celebration dinner and the commissioning of a celebratory book.
While the dinner and fixture are on hold, and we will revisit these plans once restrictions ease to assess to feasibility of holding them at a later date, I am pleased to announce that the 150th Anniversary book, A Celebration of Derbyshire County Cricket Club, has gone to print with an expected publication date during the last week in October.
Over 100 Members registered for the Subscriber’s Edition, and while this option is now closed, you can pre-order a copy of the hardback book, priced at £25, by contacting our Membership & Ticket Office on 01332 388 101, or email at [email protected].
While we are all unable to attend Derbyshire matches at this time, supporters can watch the team throughout the Vitality Blast via our new upgraded match centres, which feature live streams (where applicable), as well as highlights, stats and an interactive scorecard. Find out more and follow the matches live at derbyshireccc.com.
Thank you as always for your support, stay safe and I look forward to welcoming you back to The Incora County Ground.
