As the Club prepare to depart for pre-season in Barbados, the left-handed opening batsman reflects to Tom Holdcroft on his decision to join Derbyshire.
Tom Holdcroft Interview, March 8th, 2013.
Welcome to Derbyshire Billy. Why Derbyshire?
My career had come to a crossroads after Essex released me last August. I hadn’t scored the volume of runs I believed I was capable of and I hadn’t been part of Essex’s one day plans, so the club decided to invest in other young, locally-based players. As a consequence, it gave me a chance to meet face-to-face with several other clubs (and their coaches), of which Derbyshire was the first.
