The Derbyshire Owls were formed in the summer of 2010. The club seeks to ensure that players have a smile on their face both on and off the field. With only a handful of players who started, it’s been a long journey but they’ve got a competitive team on the field. A special mention must be given to Andy Lewis because without his dedication there would be no cricket club without him.
The team has a huge diverse age range from the youngest at 18 to the eldest at 83. The team consists of both male and female players. When new players join, they are made to feel welcome and with emphasis on having fun. The club is very inclusive with decisions made on and off the field as collective ones, it doesn’t matter if you were a player from the start or recently joined your opinion matters.
The Owls currently play in the North and East division of the Development League. Although only entering the league a couple of years ago they have been very competitive but also acquitted themselves well at the BJMT Development festival. A recent move to Alvaston and Boulton cricket club will continue to help them evolve as a club.
