The vision remains to also improve seating facilities around the boundary to create an amphitheatre capable of hosting various levels of international and tourist cricket as well as concerts and community events.

There is also potential for additional funding, derived from projected commercial income through ICC global events, which could substantially increase the available pot of money during forthcoming years, to the region of £4million.

PHASE ONE: PLANNING PERMISSION RECIEVED

GroundDevelopmentDerbyshire County Cricket Club has received planning permission from Derby City Council for phase one of the proposed ground development at The 3aaa County Ground. 

The first phase of development is scheduled to commence soon after the conclusion of the 2014 season.

It will see the Gateway Centre renovated into a state of the art cricket centre of excellence and pavilion, whilst also renovating the Lund Pavilion to create better facilities for Members, supporters, sponsors and Conference & Events customers.

The Club has already secured grant funding of £1million following the introduction of the Supervisory Board at the AGM in 2013 and the subsequent approval of the Club’s business plan by the ECB.

Cricket Derbyshire India Club

India ClubThe Cricket Derbyshire India Club was formed ahead of the visit of the touring India side to The 3aaa County Ground, Derby, in July 2014. 

By creating the India Club, the Club aim to welcome new members who love cricket and are keen to meet others in a relaxed and welcoming setting. The Club are looking to leave a long-term legacy of supporters coming back to enjoy their local County Cricket Club.

Derbyshire wicketkeeper, Tom Poynton, is chairing a high-flying group of advisors containing the likes of Baggy Shanker (Sinfin & Osmaston Councillor)), Kultaran Singh (Managing Director, HSKS Greenhalgh Accountants) Sunny Sharma (Director, Datron Ltd) and Narinder Sharma (Chief Executive, Derbyshire Carers).

The group is tasked with grasping the opportunity to welcome and engage the British Indian population to play, attend and follow cricket in Derbyshire and create partnerships with local communities. 

Over 300 people from the local British Indian community attended the India Club's i
naugural Dinner in July 2014, with guest speaker Ravi Shastri. The Club are now planning its second event for Diwalhi in October. More details to be announced in due course. 

The Cricket Derbyshire India Club was also instrumental in supporting the Club's efforts to secure Cheteshwar Pujara and we hope the opportunity to watch such an accomplished India Test performer play county cricket here at The 3aaa County Ground will inspire even more local cricket fans to join us.

Pujara has also committed to taking part in local community events during his stay with the Club.
