Warm congratulations to Wes Durston for winning the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award for last month, the first Derbyshire player to do so.
He has been a great asset to Derbyshire cricket since plucked from the Unicorns setup by John Morris and has thrived in the positive atmosphere engendered by Karl Krikken. Wes has a role in the side that he is comfortable with and he has contributed runs, wickets and catches in a major contribution to Derbyshire's fine start.
When he scores runs it is quickly and his footwork is quick and positive. As the senior professional in a young side at 31, he sets an excellent example and can be rightly proud of his award, a reflection of a job well done.
