HughesChesney Hughes will play for Derbyshire in 2013 as an England Qualified cricketer after completing his residency.

Today’s news completes a double pre-season boost for the 22-year-old after recently signing a two-and-a-half year contract committing him to the Club until September 2015.

Hughes, born in Anguilla, made his List A debut for Derbyshire in 2009. He has since gone on to make 100 first team appearances in all competitions.

Voted the Club’s Player of the Year in 2010, Hughes has scored 1,553 first-class runs in a Derbyshire shirt with four centuries.

Chief Executive Simon Storey said: “We pledged in our cricket strategy to field nine English qualified cricketers as of the 2013 season. Chesney’s qualification ensures that ambition becomes a reality.

“It is also a great moment on a personal level for Chesney who has an exciting future in the game and I’m sure will make many valuable contributions during the coming years.”
