Unless something special happens down at the County Ground tomorrow, this will be my last pre-Christmas blog.
I'd just like to thank all of you for your continued support, comments and e mails over the past twelve months. The blog continues to grow and now has more hits per month in the close season than it did during it two years ago, which is appreciated more than you will ever know.
Early in the New Year I will be running a short series of articles based on an interview with former Derbyshire batsman and now successful writer Peter Gibbs, who kindly agreed to answer my questions about his writing and about his time playing for the county in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Then there will be a new season to look forward to, with division one cricket and an exciting young team to support, hopefully aided and abetted by an overseas player of some ability.
Between times, have a wonderful Christmas!
