Derbyshire...National Cricket Champions

Recommended Posts

My foster lad plays for Derbyshire in Disability Cricket (mixture of physical and learning difficulties) and yesterday they beat Yorkshire in the national final. The teams ages range from 18 to 72.

Chasing 194 in 35 overs they were 20 for 4 but recovered to win by 4 wickets with 2 overs to spare. To add to the accomplishment the lad who was verbally abused on camera at Nottm train station last year by a Forest idiot scored 43 not out off around 36 balls to win us the game. 

Sometimes sport comes good in the end.

With an artificial knee and he scored 48 not out.

<insert Gary Rowett comment>

But seriously good effort. As a sport Cricket does seem to genuinely be trying to reach out.
