Steve Stubbings Awarded Benefit
The 29-year-old left-hander has scored 6755 first-class runs for his only county at an average of 32.01.
A stubborn and reliable opening batsman, Stubbings was awarded his County Cap in 2001 and he has captained the side on several occasions during the past two seasons.
Chairman Don Amott said: “This is a thoroughly deserved accolade for Steve who has been a terrific servant to Derbyshire County Cricket Club for over a decade.
“Not only has he been an outstanding and reliable player, he is also one of the nicest and most genuine guys you will meet in cricket.
“I hope he has a very successful benefit year and that the members and supporters come out and support his events throughout the year 2008.”
Stubbings: “I have been very proud to represent Derbyshire over the last 11 seasons and to be given a benefit year is an incredible honour and is very humbling.
“Being awarded a benefit year is something that doesn’t happen to everybody and I feel extremely privileged to be selected, particularly when you look at the list of previous beneficiaries in recent years which is pretty exclusive company to be in.”
