The Derbyshire County Cricket Supporters’ Club has written to its Members informing them that the Club is being wound up. This is not a decision the County Club was aware of or endorses and in the County Club's view it is regrettable.
At Derbyshire County Cricket Club the Committee and whole staff are working tirelessly to ensure a brighter future for the Club both on and off the field.
At the most recent County Club General Committee Meeting there was a discussion about the present structure and workings of the Supporters’ Club with its Chairman.
However, these discussions were solely aimed at ensuring that the Supporters’ Club can better fulfill its long-standing aims of fostering interest in the County Club and assisting in raising funds to support projects of benefit to Derbyshire CCC.
We wholeheartedly regret the unilateral decision on the part of the Supporters’ Club to wind itself up and we will try to ensure that the funds held within the Supporters’ Club are safeguarded for the purposes they were intended.
In the view of the General Committee, a vibrant Supporters’ Club is an integral part of any County Cricket Club and we will work hard in the coming months to review all options in order to offer our loyal Members a re-launched Club in the near future.
