Wayne Madsen was understandably delighted with his side’s comprehensive eight wicket victory over Glamorgan, a result that sees Derbyshire clear at the top of the LV=County Championship Division Two table.

Derbyshire’s win – their fourth First Class victory in a row over the Welsh county – came inside three days in a match that saw the hosts clinical in all facets of the game.

And the captain, who himself starred with an unbeaten 130 in the first innings, was pleased with the performance and result, especially given the loss of Mark Footitt to injury early on.

A Personal Statement from the Chairman

A recent letter, sent by Chairman of the Derbyshire County Cricket Club Supporters' Club Colin Gardner to its members, explained that the Supporters Club Committee has resigned and the Supporters’ Club has effectively been wound-up.

Unfortunately, the letter contains a number of allegations that are not a true reflection of events and, as I am sure you will appreciate, there are always two sides to every story.

I do not usually comment on such matters but in this case, where the reputation of Derbyshire County Cricket Club, the DCCC Committee and indeed my own reputation are called into question, I will set out the detailed and accurate chain of events for you.

Derbyshire lose unbeaten start

Wes DurstonSeven matches into the 2012 campaign, Derbyshire tasted defeat for the first time in a nine-wicket reverse against Warwickshire today.

Rikki Clarke haunted the club he used to captain with figures of 3 for 22 as the Falcons were all out for 122 before Jonathan Trott and William Porterfield made light work of the run-chase.

Warwickshire won the toss and elected to field on a sunny but blustery Edgbaston afternoon - and they quickly had the Falcons in trouble.

Chesney Hughes (5) edged Chris Wright to slip with the score on nine in the second over. And when Chris Woakes, who took 2 for 20 from five overs, accounted for Martin Guptill (3) and Wayne Madsen (0) lbw and caught slip respectively, the Falcons were 19-3 just 25 deliveries into the match.
