KS4 visit to Derbyshire County Cricket Ground

Today our year 10 and 11 Physical Education group went to Derbyshire County Cricket Ground to watch them play Gloucestershire. We also were lucky enough to be treated very well by Derbyshire who invited us on a tour of the ground and facilities. We were able to see the indoor cricket facilities, BBC Radio Derby commentary box, youtube streaming centre and the media centre. Jane (Derbyshire County Cricket and International scorer) and Jess (Inclusion officer for Derbyshire County Cricket Club) showed us around the site and explained the many job roles that are involved in a cricket match. We learnt about the history of the club and the ground and were even able to demonstrate the cricket skills we have been practicing in our lessons. A truly memorable and interesting day.’
