Groundsmen

The Derbyshire Groundsman's Association

Cricket Derbyshire logo

The Derbyshire Groundsman's Association was formed in 1999 by the Derbyshire Cricket Board with the aims of promoting the role of the cricket groundsmen for the benefit of cricket in Derbyshire.

Currently Steve Hart of Sandiacre is the Chairman. John Lindsay of Elvaston is secretary and Lee Collison from Risley is the treasurer.

Since its formation the association has negotiated discounts for members with pitch care products to help to reduce the costs to clubs with loam, seed and fertilisers.

The association has also provided funding for formal training courses with the professional body and provided free advice from an ECB pitch advisor, who will meet groundsmen at the ground and discuss any issues they may have.

The association can give details of machinery repairers and suppliers who have regularly provided quality service to members over the years.

Two trailers equipped with end of season renovation equipment are available to member clubs each Autumn.

Meetings are held throughout the season to discuss issues and meet fellow groundsmen, with the AGM being held in January each year.

The annual subscription for the association is £25.00. All DCCL Premier and Division one clubs have their subscriptions included in their league subscriptions.

The 2016 AGM is to be held at Denby CC on Thursday 28th January 2016 at 7pm. All clubs who are members of the DCCL or the DCB are invited to attend and to join the association.

We would ask that all clubs make their respective groundsmen aware of the association and encourage them to become members, for the benefit of your club.

Further details can be obtained by speaking to the secretary, John Lindsay on 07929 281527.

We look forward to seeing current members and any new members at the AGM on January 28th 2016
