Cash incentive for Derbyshire players

Derbyshire

Derbyshire players have been offered a £200,000 prize fund for winning all three domestic trophies this season.

The scheme, funded by local businessman Peter Gadsby, would see £100,000 added to the existing prize money for winning the domestic Twenty20 competition.

A further £50,000 would be paid out for for winning the county title and £50,000 for lifting the CB40 crown.

"It is a novel opportunity for the players and the more I have to pay out, the happier I will be," Gadsby said.

The scheme also offers payments for finishing as runners-up in the three competitions and for finishing as the losing semi-finalists in the 20 and 40-over tournaments.
