Derbyshire Cricket Board announce new structure and directors

CricketDerbyshireThe Derbyshire Cricket Board has reacted to changes in the landscape of cricket in the county, and nationally, following a root and branch review of the recreational game.

Five new Directors have been appointed – and a new structure announced - by the Derbyshire Cricket Board, which is responsible for the recreational game throughout the county as well as the development of age group cricketers.

The changes have been inspired by the recently announced Elite Cricket Department that will see the need for increased alignment and partnership between Derbyshire County Cricket Club and DCB; as well as the shift to developing, in conjunction with the cricket network, locally led products and services as encouraged by the England & Wales Cricket Board and Sport England to sustain and increase cricket participation.

The new structure, which has undergone a series of consultations with representatives of member organisations, establishes four pillars of delivery; Senior Cricket, Junior Cricket, Elite Cricket Department and Commercial, with a newly appointed Director being accountable for the delivery of each pillar.

[VIDEO] Clare vows to bounce back in 2014

JonathanClareAll-rounder Jonathan Clare has put the worries of an injury-hit 2013 season behind him as he vows to come back stronger than ever next summer.

During an injury-shortened campaign, the 27-year-old claimed 17 first-class wickets at a shade over 32, but failed to feature in the Club’s final eight LV= County Championship Division One fixtures.

After an end of season recuperation period, Clare is now back to full fitness and has been taking part fully in pre-season training at the County Ground. He will now be putting in the hours over the winter to ensure he’s back 100 per cent for the start of the new season in April.  

“Any time you get injured it’s frustrated,” Clare said. “Watching the lads last season come in and train, especially when they were struggling, was frustrating and I would have loved to have been out there with them.

“But unfortunately my back wasn’t up to it. But I will be working harder than anyone to get that right this winter.
