Derbyshire launches Elite Cricket Performance model

MiddlesexCelebrationsDerbyshire County Cricket Club has announced its new cricket management structure following a recent review by the Supervisory Board.

The implementation of an elite cricket performance model is the next phase of the Club’s quest for sustainable on-field success across all three domestic competitions, combined with the desire to produce England cricketers.

All members of the existing coaching staff, including Head Coach Karl Krikken, have been invited to apply for positions within the new structure. However, the Club also intends to invite external expressions of interest in each of the roles.

The new structure comes as a result of the findings of a number of reports reviewed by the Supervisory Board on cricket operations at Derbyshire. It has already undergone a period of consultation involving the coaching team and the playing squad.

Tallent pleased with pre-season progression

JamieTallentStrength and Conditioning Coach Jamie Tallent is already seeing noticeable physical improvements in the squad as pre-season training continues to intensify prior to the Christmas break.

The squad have been back in training since the start of November working hard on both their strength and conditioning ahead of the 2014 campaign.

As well as enduring long runs around the outfield, the players have been in the gym at least five days a week all working to their own specific dedicated training schedule.  

Tallent has been pleased with the squad’s progression so far and says many players have already achieved winter and even career bests over the last month.

“Everyone’s progressing very well and it’s been a good first five weeks,” he said.

“The gym work has been constant for all the players and has got gradually got more intense as we’ve gone along.

Wes Durston Blog: Pre-season doesn't get easier

WesDurstonBlogWhat has the first month back been like for the Derbyshire squad? All-rounder Wes Durston gives us an insight into the players' pre-season training schedule in his first blog for the Club.

Pre-season training is supposed to get easier with age. This is now my fourth winter with Derbyshire and it’s easily the hardest start we’ve had.

When we were first told that we would be doing two sessions a day, gym and strength work in the morning and cardio in the afternoon, it was certainly a shock to the system. Previously we’ve had a session in the morning and then that would be it. Now we have the same intensity with the weights but also the cardio work on top. It’s safe to say there were a few sore legs after the first week.

But the shock has now passed and it’s, surprisingly, become quite fun. We have different cardio squads and we’re all helping each other get through it. Everything has increased, the weights have gone up and we’re running for longer. Each day the running is, apparently, supposed to be getting easier, but I can tell you it’s hard work. But we are all working together as a group which helps to make this process a lot easier.

The banter and the camaraderie amongst the lads is great, as always, and this was seen last week when the squad went paintballing at the National Paintballing Fields at Bassetts Pole.
