Denby Cricket Club 30th year celebrations

Denby Cricket Club is celebrating the 30th year of playing at the Copper Yard ground.

After losing their ground to opencast mining in the mid-1970’s, the club were relocated to the Copper Yard in 1982.

During that period the club has developed from two senior and one junior team to running 15 teams in total.

To celebrate the club is holding a festival of cricket to commemorate the occasion.

It all kicks off on Saturday when the first team host Lullington Park in the Derbyshire Premier League and will finish off on Sunday, September 2, with a President’s Day which will feature a Past v Present team.

There will be a whole host of activity in between including the Chairman’s Day on Sunday, August 26, which will be complemented by the Derbyshire over 50’s playing Warwickshire in the National Semi Final of the over 50’s competition.

The club will be playing Derbyshire Disabled Cricket Club on Tuesday, August 28, and there will be a focus on girls cricket on Thursday, August 30.

The club is particularly keen to catch up with ex-players and invite them to visit the ground during the week.
