Derek Morgan To Be Derbyshire's New President
As Bob Taylor's two-year term as Derbyshire County Cricket Club President comes to an end, another Derbyshire legend will step into the role for the next two years.
Derek Morgan will be formally elected to the office at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 30th March 2011.
Derbyshire's General Committee unanimously approved the single nomination of one of the finest players to represent Derbyshire.
Morgan is Derbyshire’s leading first-class appearance maker having represented the county in 540 matches between 1950 and 1969.
17,842 runs make Morgan the Club’s third leading run scorer of all time and 1,216 wickets put the former all-rounder fifth in the all time list.
Morgan also contributed 563 catches and enjoyed a four-year stint as Captain from 1965 to 1969; leading the side to a Gillette Cup Final appearance at Lord’s in his final year.
Everyone connected with Derbyshire County Cricket Club would like to thank Bob Taylor for his support and commitment during his term as President, and congratulates Derek Morgan on his election.
