As part of their 150th Anniversary celebrations, supporters of Derbyshire County Cricket Club can now read a detailed history of the club in a newly released Official 150th Anniversary Book.

Chief Executive, Ryan Duckett, said: “Our Members and supporters are at the heart of Derbyshire County Cricket Club and they have continued to show their loyal support throughout a challenging 2020.

“While we are pleased to be able to mark the formation date of the club on 4 November with a pictorial book – the definitive written history of the club – we wanted to be able to celebrate this landmark with a variety of events.

"This included a celebratory dinner scheduled for this evening featuring some of the legendary players that have played for the club over the years. Sadly we have been unable to do that along with a number of events that have been postponed due to government restrictions.

“Whilst frustrating we are still hopeful of having some great events to mark our 150th year over the next 12 months. We’re continuing to plan for a commemorative fixture among other events, and although these will be dependent on the government guidelines at the time, we will also add in digital panel events and opportunities to hear from former players, the likes of which have been well-received by supporters this summer.”

Cover artwork for the book has been created by sports artist, SPARKIUS and forms part of a series of artwork created to celebrate the club's anniversary.

A Celebration of Derbyshire County Cricket Club is available to buy online.
