to guest speaker, Mal Loye
In 2003 he moved to Lancashire where he enjoyed further success before returning once more to Northants.
When he finished playing he held the roles of Batting Coach at Natal and High Performance Head Coach with Bangladesh.
In December 2016 Mal joined Derbyshire as Development Coach and he explained to the meeting what that role entailed and how it fitted into the new DCCC structure. He obviously enjoys working with the 2nd. XI and the Academy players very much and is very proud of the progress made by them.
This was a very enjoyable meeting in the presence of a knowledgeable and affable man. Anyone who scores 322 runs in a first class innings has to have been a pretty good cricketer too – and he certainly was that.
Lots of questions and warm applause confirmed the enjoyment of members present. A really good start to the season.
Many thanks Mal!
