Product of the Cricket Derbyshire Academy in partnership with University of Derby, all-rounder Hughes made his first-team debut against Yorkshire in the 2011 domestic Twenty20 competition.
It was his only senior appearance in 2011, but he went on to feature in seven 40-over matches and a further three 20-over games in 2012, earning him a new contract as a result.
The promising all-rounder enjoyed his most successfully season to date in 2013, making his first-class debut in Derbyshire’s LV= County Championship Division One victory against Sussex at Hove in August.
Hughes appeared in the Club’s final six top-flight fixtures in 2013, claiming six wickets and adding 136 runs as Derbyshire claimed memorable wins over Sussex, Middlesex and Somerset.
The Academy graduate also made three Twenty20 appearances and featured in nine List A contests, compiling a top score of 59 not out in the county's victory over Essex at Leek.

After a standout 2013 campaign, Captain Wayne Madsen signed a new three-year contract committing him to the Club until the end of the 2016 season.
After joining the Club in 2009, Madsen hit two centuries in his first four games with the county and averaged 57.78 in the County Championship in his first season.
He became a solid presence at the top of the Derbyshire order and was named Club Captain in 2012, leading the county to LV= County Championship promotion and their first silverware since 1993. During that season he compiled a career-best 231 against Northamptonshire and shared a ninth-wicket partnership of 261 with Tom Poynton which was just 23 runs short of the world record.
Madsen enjoyed his best season of his professional career in 2013. He became the first player in the country to reach 1,000 LV= County Championship Division One runs during a standout 2013 season which brought a total of 1,239 first-class runs at 43.60 with three hundreds and eight fifties.
He also added 389 runs in the one-day arena in 2013, including a career-best List A score of 78 in Derbyshire’s 40-over match versus Lancashire.

Cricket Derbyshire Academy in partnership with University of Derby graduate Peter Burgoyne made his LV= County Championship debut for the Club in the Division One victory over Sussex in 2013.
The off-spinning all-rounder has been with the Club since the age of 13 and has progressed through the age groups and is now firmly part of the first-team fold.
He made his senior debut in 2011 during a summer that also included eight appearances for England Under-19, the highlight of which was his performance with the ball in a one-day match against South Africa in Canterbury, when he took 4 for 8 from 6.2 overs to help England to a two-wicket victory.
Burgoyne made his first-class debut in October 2012 with an unbeaten century for Southern Rocks against Mashonaland Eagles in Zimbabwe's Logan Cup.
He made his first-class debut for Derbyshire in their three-day tour match against New Zealand in May 2013, before going on to play five Championship games that season. In that time, he compiled 168 runs, including an unbeaten 62 against Sussex, while also claiming six wickets. He also featured in nine limited-overs games for Derbyshire in 2013.

Cricket Derbyshire Academy in partnership with University of Derby graduate Paul Borrington made his first-class debut for Derbyshire against Leicestershire in 2005.
The opening batsman, however, found opportunities were limited during the early part of his career until he made his maiden first-class hundred for Loughborough UCCE against Hampshire in 2009. By the end of the summer, he had gained a regular spot in Derbyshire’s first team.
Borrington looked ready to secure one of the opening slots at the start of the 2011 season, only to suffer torn ankle ligaments during fielding practice.
Once fit again he regained his place in the county’s victorious 2012 LV= County Championship Division Two side, featuring in more than half of the matches.
Injury again ruled him out of the start of the 2013 campaign, but by the close of the campaign Borrington had reclaimed his spot at the top of the order in the four-day contest.
Unlike previous seasons, Borrington was a regular in the county’s List A side in 2013, featuring in 11 matches scoring 237 runs including a career-best 72 against Surrey.

Jonathan Clare made a memorable first-class debut for Derbyshire claiming his maiden five-wicket haul against Nottinghamshire in 2007.
Product of the Lancashire youth system, the all-rounder joined Derbyshire in 2005 competing regular in the Second XI for two years before getting his first-class call up.
Clare enjoyed a fruitful 2008 season with bat and ball, scoring his maiden first-class hundred against Northamptonshire in July before picking up career-best bowling figures of 7 for 74 in the same game.
He was rewarded for a good season with a place in a three-week ECB strength and conditioning programme for fast bowlers in Florida, but struggled to find a place in the first XI in 2009 and 2010, when he was hampered by injuries.
Nonetheless, he bounce backed claiming 43 first-class wickets and scoring 688 runs in 2011, including a career-best 130 against Glamorgan at the County Ground, batting at No 9, adding a further 30 wickets at 21.40 in the 2012 Division Two title-winning season, having claimed his first 10-wicket match haul against Glamorgan - again - in April, when he took 11 for 57.
The all-rounder, however, was once again plagued by injury in 2013 which limited him to only six Championship fixtures in which he claimed 17 wickets.
