Derbyshire Head of Cricket John Morris has signed a new deal at the club which will keep him at The County Ground for another two years.

Morris, who played for the club between 1982 and 1993, was appointed as Head of Cricket in 2007 and in 2008 he ensured Derbyshire were unbeaten at home in the LV County Championship and this season they remain in the hunt for promotion.

“John spent a lot of his playing career at The County Ground and he is passionate about Derbyshire cricket,” Chairman Don Amott said.

“There is no question that significant progress has been made on the field since John took over as Head of Cricket and we are delighted that he has agreed to continue the role for a further two years.”

Morris said: “Having begun the process of taking the club forward on the field during the past two years, I am pleased to have the opportunity of continuing that process.

“We have managed to attract some good players from other counties, the development structure has unearthed some exciting young talent to work with and the club is also making excellent strides off the field.  I look forward to the future with genuine excitement.”
