First team players to hold charity Twitter auction

PlayersAuctionDerbyshire County Cricket Club is hosting a special charity auction on Twitter to help raise funds for our three charity partners and the forthcoming pre-season tour to Abu Dhabi. 

Over the next 15 days, the Club will auction unique pieces of Derbyshire memorabilia - including a 2012 LV= County Championship Division Two winner's medal – for supporters to place their bids.

Each day we will be offering a different piece of Derbyshire history for supporters to get their hands on – including signed shirts, signed bats and match-worn memorabilia. 

To bid on an item, simply follow Derbyshire on Twitter (@DerbyshireCCC) and send us a tweet with your bid for that day’s item.

The highest bidder at 9.00pm every day will win. The Club will then send a direct message to the lucky winner with further information.

The auction to win a 2012 LV= County Championship Division Two winner's medal will run from Thursday 20th February and will end at 3pm on Wednesday 5th March. 

Proceeds raised will be split between Cricket Derbyshire’s 2014 charity partners, which will be announced in due course. While a percentage will also help towards funding Derbyshire’s pre-season tour of Abu Dhabi, which will allow Graeme Welch’s men to prepare for the new season alongside New Zealand in the elite sporting environment of the state of the art Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium. 

More exclusive Derbyshire prizes will be on offer at the Players’ Luncheon on Wednesday 5th March – and places are still available!

Join Derbyshire Captain Wayne Madsen and his team-mates for lunch in the Marquee with Club legend and former England National Selector Geoff Miller OBE.

Tables of 10 are available for just £350 plus vat or individual places are priced at £40 including vat per person. To book your place please contact 01332 388101 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
