Gloucestershire v Derbyshire
After eight consecutive defeats Derbyshire broke the ice when in their last home fixture in division three of the BDO Inter County Championships they beat Tyne and Wear convincingly with a 20-16 result, they will be hoping to add to that win when this coming weekend they travel to take on Gloucestershire who are third in the promotion table.
Derbyshire have four remaining fixtures to lift themselves off the foot of the table and dispel any fears of relegation. With confidence high after their last win a second result in their favour could be just the tonic to see them end the rough spell they have had over the last two and a half seasons.
Derbyshire’s team selection is, Men’s ‘A’:- Paul Baker, Pete Burgoyne, Nigel Daniels, Gary Fenn, Richard Hanson, Rob Hawker, Sean Lambert, Rob Smith, Brian Snell, Steve Soar, Lee Stanley, Men’s ‘B’:- Ian Allcock, Adrian Asprey, Andrew Baker, Gary Barker, Ian Clarke, Henry Coates, Keith Cooper, Andy Gillott, Ryan Hassell, Ben Holmes, Steve Paling, Colin Rich, Reserves:- Dan Ford, David Fritchley, Connor Hodgkinson, Scott McCabe, Richard Palmer, Tim Rippon, Ian Scobbie, Paul Williams, Women’s ‘A’:- Rachel Ayres, Rebecca Hoyland, Jennifer McCormick, Louise Rawson, Jackie Sweet, Women’s ‘B’:- Terri Bellamy, Dee Fenn, Sara-Jane Harrison, Lauren Jackson, Emily Jones, Holly Wright, Reserves:- Dawn Buckley, Kerri Buckley, Michelle Cunningham, Kelly Dean, Sara Jukes, Emma Varnam, Carol Western.
