List of Derbyshire County Cricket Club seasons

This is a list of seasons played by Derbyshire County Cricket Club in English cricket, from the club's formation in 1870.


Early years 1871–1887Edit

Derbyshire played their first matches in 1871. For the first three years their only opponents were Lancashire. When Kent joined in 1874, by a quirk of scoring which was based on games lost, they were County Champion. The club was bedevilled by financial problems, and in 1888 the sporting press decided no longer to accord them first class status.

Divisions 1999 – 2009Edit

In 1999 the National League was split into two divisions, followed by the County Championship in 2000. The National Westminster Bank Trophy became the Cheltenham and Gloucester Trophy and then The Friends Provident Trophy. The League had various appellations until it became the National League. The Benson & Hedges Competition was dropped in 2002 and the Twenty20 competition substituted in 2003.
