After another gloomy year of underachievement in 2004, Derbyshire have at last got something to celebrate, after their director of cricket, David Houghton, agreed to an extension of his contract, which will keep him at the club until the end of 2007.

Houghton, a former captain and coach of Zimbabwe, joined the club in September 2003, although he was unable to make an immediate impact, as Derbyshire finished second-from-bottom in both the Championship and the one-day league.

"The first season in charge has been interesting and progress has been made with the squad," he said. "I am glad to have the opportunity to work for the longer period."
