Derby Telegraph named ECB Regional Paper of the Year

DerbyTelegraphThe Derby Telegraph has been named Regional Newspaper of the Year at the ECB’s annual County Cricket Journalism Awards thanks to its dedicated coverage of Derbyshire County Cricket Club.  

Sports reporter Mark Eklid, who covers Derbyshire for the Telegraph at both home and away fixtures, was presented with the award at the Lord’s Taverners.

The Telegraph provides local cricket lovers with the latest updates from the County Club as well as offering readers up-to-date results and reports from around the local Derbyshire leagues.
