Madsen scoops top prize for second year

WayneMadsenWayne Madsen became the first player to retain Derbyshire County Cricket Club's Player of the Year award outright since the turn of the century at last night's presentation evening.

The 29-year-old scooped the prestigious prize for a second straight year in recognition for an impressive 2013 season in which he hit 1,628 runs and became the first man to reach 1,000 Championship runs, achieving the feat against Middlesex at the County Ground, Derby in August.
