Thakor hails Welch impact

ShivThakorShiv Thakor says he’s excited to be working with Elite Performance Director Graeme Welch, who has already had a positive impact on his game.

The 21-year-old joined Derbyshire on a two-year deal from Leicestershire at the end of the 2014 season and has been in training with his new teammates since the start of pre-season in November. 

Thakor said: “One great thing about me coming to Derbyshire was Elite Performance Director Graeme Welch who is renowned as one of the best bowling coaches in the country.

“Having done just a couple of sessions with him I can safely say he must be one of the best. He’s been a great influence so far and I’m really looking forward to working with him.

“Graeme will add a lot to my bowling.

Ground Development Blog #5: Gateway transformation

GroundDevelopmentAfter seven weeks of largely working beneath the radar, the first green shoots are visible of the first phase of ground development at The 3aaa County Ground. 

The new Pavilion entrance is gradually taking shape with the brickwork approaching the level of the first floor, while all the necessary demolition work has been completed, the drains installed and the first fix electrical installation almost finished.

Over in the Gateway, the new internal corridors have been created and the former Chief Executive’s office has already been converted into the Umpire’s dressing room. This will offer the umpires an ideal view of the ground and provide them with modern changing facilities.

Work on the first floor viewing gallery is also progressing well now that the external floor level has been built up to match the interior, and the windows are being relocated to provide what will be the players dressing rooms.

Meanwhile, normal Club business goes on around the development work and it’s pleasing to report a very harmonious relationship between staff, players and Derwent Valley Construction.

Welch: We have the belief to succeed

GraemeWelchGraeme Welch says Derbyshire will approach the new season armed with belief after an outstanding end to the 2014 campaign.

Derbyshire claimed five wins in the last six LV= County Championship fixtures last season, ending the campaign as the in-form county to secure a fourth place finish in Division Two.

Elite Performance Director Welch says the squad has taken a lot of belief from the way they finished last season and believes promotion is a possibility in 2015. 

“I can’t see why we can’t get promoted, the way we played at the end of the season and the belief we took from that,” he said. “Hopefully, we will take that straight into our first game.

“Lancashire are a big club. They have a new boss in Ashley Giles, who used to be my boss, and it will be good locking horns with him.
