Jonathan Clare and Tony Palladino made comebacks from injury in a practice fixture at Alvaston and Boulton yesterday.
All-rounder Clare featured in a competitive match for the first time since Derbyshire’s Friends Life t20 clash with Yorkshire on Sunday, 14th July.
Paceman Palladino, meanwhile, returned from injury that has kept him sidelined since the home four-day match with Somerset in mid-June.
Both are hoping to prove their fitness ahead of the county’s crucial LV= County Championship fixture with Middlesex at the County Ground starting on Tuesday, 20th August.
Supporters who buy tickets in advance for the LV=CC fixture with Middlesex will benefit from discounted prices of £12 adults, £4 juniors and £4 car parking; available online here or by calling 01332 388 101.
A further £2 discount is available per adult ticket for a group containing four or more adults. Tickets are also available on the gate priced at £16 adults, £5 juniors and £5 car parking.
