Been a busy old week chez Peakfan, with my birthday among other things that have kept me busy.
It is also a landmark weekend, with the blog going past 2.75 million views and interest continuing. Thank you so much to all those who check in, wherever you are in the world.
Yesterday was the closing date for applications for the Head of Cricket role, so we are fast approaching a defining moment for Derbyshire cricket.
I think they will want to interview as soon as possible, so my expectation is that the successful candidate will be announced inside the next fortnight, so he can get on with the job of improving our fortunes in 2022.
With John Sadler already taking the Northamptonshire role, it is the only one on the county circuit at present. A challenge, for sure, but one that a lot of people should fancy. We just need someone brave enough to make big decisions, intelligent enough to strategise the club's future and cricket-savvy to make our game more aggressive. Throw in the need for motivational skills and good contacts and the need for someone special is clear.
Fingers crossed we get such a man.
In closing, there are just over 24 hours to put your name in the hat for a signed copy of Luke Sutton's excellent book 'Life of a cricket agent'
It is open to anyone who has so far sponsored the blog, so if you have done so AND would like the book, please drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you haven't yet donated, please feel free to click the 'donate' button that is visible on your PC or tablet, in the top left hand corner.
I look forward to announcing the winner in the coming week.
