DCB U12 Boys v Northamptonshire on Tuesday 26th May 2015 at Great Oakley CC

Result: Northamptonshire 233/6 in 40 overs beat Derbyshire 191/5 in 40 overs (Joe Jacques 65) by 5 wickets

Derbyshire's game against Northants had a rescheduled start time of 11am, so it was an early get up for everyone in order to get down to Great Oakley CC for the fixture.

On arrival, the ground looked lovely bathed in glorious sunshine, not something that has been very evident in the early part of the 2015 season!
The wicket looked very dry and firm and it was no surprise when Northamptonshire won the toss they elected to bat first.

Denton and Bascetta-Pollitt opened the batting for the hosts, against the Derbyshire skipper Clayton and the energetic Jones. Northants made steady progress on what looked a really good batting wicket. Jones particularly had found some early pace, but it was Clayton that took the first wicket to fall, that of Denton when he was caught by Khan at cover. The second wicket soon followed and involved Khan again, when Harvey the new batsman was dropped by Khan he set of for run, Khan soon swooped for the ball as it was spilled and with a direct hit he had is revenge from his disappointment as Harvey was on his way run out for 5 with the score on 41 in the 13th over. The 3rd wicket went down with the score on 66 in the 20th over as Valentine had Bascetta-Pollitt LBW for a very cultured 21.

A chilly overcast day in the fens required cool heads as Derbyshire U12s held their nerve to finally beat our bogey team of Lincolnshire. Ultimately victory was secured off the last ball by 9 runs as Hamid Qadri held onto a catch off the last ball of Archie Shannon's last over which yielded 1 run, 3 dot balls and 2 wickets "The Iceman Cometh"...

DCB U12 Boys v Cheshire Thursday 27th June 2013 at Hawk green CC

Abandoned due to rain.

From one end of Hawk Green Cricket Club’s ground you get a truly exceptional panoramic view of Stockport and the East side of Manchester. However, those knowledgeable about the area also know that it never rains there but it pours; and it did. So a potentially exciting game of cricket was brought to a premature close leaving Derbyshire 132-1 off 31 overs with Nils Priestley high and dry not out on 72 and his partner Max Webber with 29*.

Being put into bat by our Cheshire hosts Max and Reece Holmes produced our best opening partnership of the season and it was both a surprise and disappointment when Reece was run out for 23. Reece batted with confidence and positive intent, with one back foot cover drive being the shot of the day. Nils Priestley entered the arena and played an powerfully intelligent innings scoring 72* of 58 balls with what was potentially a match winning performance. Max provided solid support from the other end having been out in the middle from the first ball of the day.

Whilst Nils innings was outstanding, the positive intent of the opening pair, in particular to put away the bad ball, ensured the we gave ourselves the best foundation of the season from which to build. That’s good progress. So whilst a washout it was in the end, it was a positive one and the road show moves on with Staffordshire our next opponents.
