Derbyshire’s pre-season tour got underway on Monday as the squad and support staff left a snowy and bitterly cold CountyGround behind to travel across the Atlantic Ocean for some warm weather cricket ahead of what promises to be an exciting season.
A comfortable coach journey to ManchesterAirport was followed by an eight and a half hour flight to the grandly-named Grantley Adams International Airport, Barbados, before a final, short coach journey to the hotel.
Tuesday will see the squad travel a short distance to the North Stars Cricket Ground where they will spend the day on fitness and skills training before their opening game on Wednesday.
The Derbyshire website will keep members and supporters fully briefed on practice sessions and matches with updates on the club Facebook and Twitter pages, plus comprehensive photographic coverage in our gallery.
