    Gunning for Success: A Derbyshire Story...

    Ok, I'll be writing my first ICC 2005 story, I am playing with Derbyshire and am currently 3 games into the season, here is summary of the season up to this point:

    Derbyshire sign young leg-spinner Michael Birch on a $16,000 2 year contract, The club is hoping he will be a beacon of light for the future

    1st game:
    Derbyshire 144 a.o
    Worcestershire 290 a.o
    Derbys 154 a.o
    Worcs 10/0

    Worcs won by ten wickets

    Pretty poor first up performance, Only postives to take away are Michael Birch taking 6/129 in his debut innings and young batsman James Chapman making a pretty gutsy 23 in the second innings.

    2nd game:
    Derbys 135 a.o
    Kent 139/3

    Pretty poor game really

    3rd game:
    Derbys 164/9
    Sussex 165/4

    Good innings from young Chapman (63 not out) was the only real positive here

    Well thats the season so far, more updates soon

    Good luck indeed...Derbys are pretty awful

    Can tell you that Lungley has done pretty well for them in my Surrey game though (30 wickets in FC @ 20.97 so far this season).

    Lungley is tripe for me, Kevin Dean carries the whole attack..

    Northants were dismissed for 333 in their first innings, Travis Friend was on a hattrick before Di Venuto grassed the easy catch at first slip off the hattrick ball..

    Better performance, probably could've got the draw easily but went all out for the win. Looking foward to the next game

    Pretty disappointing effort, lucky to get where we did from 61/7, Top order batting needs to be looked at..

    Dean 10-2-16-2 was fantastic

    Looks like it's got Derby's talent level about right...

    i was more concerned about the fact that no one other than Hodge was prepared to knuckle down and make a big score, and the fact they let Travis Friend score a fifty

    On the demo I played as Lancashire. 955 we made in that game. Hodge 297 and Cork 180* we were 2 wickets away from the win.
    Or something.

    Probably could've won the match if we had a decent second innings but the top order just failed to do the job again
