A thread so myself and Neil have something to talk about in the quiet summer months :D

Of course the football club is a off shoot of the cricket club, hence the County in the name, rather than Town or something else.

Nathan rimmington is the Aussie. Shiv thakor could be a good signing too.

Guptil has been recalled to the NZ test team so can only play the first 3 games, might have to look for another overseas player as well now.

Indeed, his playing exploits were well before my time, but growing up in the 90s he was truly the voice of cricket.

Derby storm was the legendary basketball team. Shame they went bust, was the only basketball team in the uk with their own arena. The derby trailblazers who formed to take their place have never made it back to the national league.

Oh and the other name for the cricket team was Derbyshire scorpions, glad they've gone to falcons, sounds better and has some relevance to derby.

Unsurprisingly a strong performance so far against Cambridge university in the warm up game. Batted first and scored 535-6 including Guptil retiring on 161, madden scored 133, thakor 60 not out. Good to see the main men in good touch. Then bowled Cambridge out for 95. 4 wickets for Footitt, should be playing for England if you ask me.

Cambridge bowled out for 176 following on, thakor 4 wickets durst on 3 doing most of the damage. Good early promise from thakor hopefully he takes that into the start of the season.

Glamorgan and Leicester and northants and Gloucester both draw in the 2 opening games of the county season. Glamorgan top if the table on 12 points.
