The book starts with Derbyshire CCC’s formation in 1870 and ends with the present. All the great players of the past are here – William Mycroft, William Chatterton, L G Wright, George Davidson, William Storer, Frederick (Demon) Spofforth, Bill Bestwick, Joe Humphries, Sam Cadman, Harry Elliott, Harry Storer, Guy Jackson, Stan Worthington, Leslie Townsend, Denis Smith, Bill Copson, Tommy Mitchell, George Pope, Cliff Gladwin, Leslie Jackson, Donald Carr, George Dawkes, Bob Taylor and Kim Barnett – to name but a few.You can read, too, of a Derbyshire batting total unsurpassed for more than a hundred years, a victory gained against an unbeaten triple century, losing despite the highest number of wickets taken by any Derbyshire bowler in one match, the sudden death that claimed one of the county’s finest all-rounders, two all-ten bowling feats, a world record ninth-wicket partnership, a vital missing leg-bye, an attack of cramp that denied the chance of a batting record, Derbyshire’s footballing cricketers, a season when the only match Derbyshire did not lose was abandoned without a ball bowled, a wonder catch at The Oval, the Derbyshire player who refused to play for England …And that is just a selection.

The Derbyshire Chronicles tells a fascinating tale of much more than a title lost and a title gained.
