Derbyshire’s 2012 Championship Season – seen through the eyes of the Scorer

As a terrific 2012 for Derbyshire County Cricketer draws to a close, Scorer John Brown writes about a wonderful summer of Derbyshire cricket from the eye of the scorer.

What a wonderful championship season 2012 was for Derbyshire; how well our unsung team played, but what anxieties and agonies they put us through on the way to that final win on the last day of the season! As the First Eleven scorer I was probably the only person who saw every ball bowled.

The margin by which Derbyshire took the LV=CC Second Division title could hardly have been narrower – 196 points, the same as Yorkshire, but Derbyshire had one more win than their closest rivals, and that was enough for them to be placed at the top of the table. So every single point gained throughout the season was absolutely crucial, although we may not have realised the significance of each of them at the time.
