Sadler said: “The lads have been brilliant so far. We tested them prior to Christmas and took them out of their comfort zones. There have been a lot of early morning running sessions on the outfield and lots of skilled based work.

“And the results, so far, have been good. The fitness results we got before Christmas were the best they have ever been here. The lads are in good shape and in a real good place ahead of the new season.

Madsen urges supporters to believe

WayneMadsenWayne Madsen is targeting a repeat of Derbyshire’s fine end of season form - but this time right from the start of the 2015 campaign.

The 2015 summer of cricket is on sale - with supporters being able to watch all 46 days of home cricket for less than £4 a day if purchased before February 1st Early Bird deadline - and the Derbyshire skipper is vowing to reward Members with a tough, relentless and aggressive brand of cricket.

The Derbyshire skipper believes his young team will take great belief from their form during the second half of the 2014 campaign and are aiming to start the new season with a bang.

Madsen said: “We’ll back each other and be fearless. We’ll keep coming at teams and we’ll be tough to play against.

“If you look at the games we won in 2014, we’ve had to hang tough, stay in the game and keep taking blows.

“There’s a belief from what we’ve done during the second half of 2014. That will bode well going into next season and I hope the members share our belief.
