Graeme Welch says supporters getting behind the Club is “massive” for the Derbyshire players as they prepare for the new season with an intense programme of Elite Performance Training.
The new Elite Performance Director says Members and supporters voting with their feet during the Club’s current Membership campaign will provide just the inspiration needed during their tough schedule.
“It’s massive that people get behind us and what we’re trying to achieve,” he said.
“I’ll be sharing the Membership and ticket numbers with the squad as we go through pre-season.
“It will show them just how much support is out there – and that the people that matter are rooting for them - as they work harder than ever to prepare for the new season.
“Members and supporters want to see us win matches,” Welch continued.
“They want a successful Derbyshire side and – by parting with their hard earned cash to join as Members or buy tickets – in my eyes they are backing us to achieve that. We, as a group, intend to reward their support.
“It will be a consistent brand of cricket as we aim to achieve success in all competitions. We will try to win every single game we play.
“I’ve looked through the squad and we’ve got some very good cricketers here. We’ll ensure that when we go out on the field we’ll be physically, tactically and mentally ready.
“It will put the squad in a better position to play the game. That’s what we are planning to do here during pre-season.
“I can promise that we will be playing a better brand of cricket this year, so please get behind us.”
