Derbyshire reschedule Chesterfield festival

Cricinfo staff

Derbyshire have announced that the Chesterfield festival, which was due to take place this week but had to be cancelled because of continuing poor weather, has been rescheduled for early September.

The re-arranged festival will begin with a Pro40 match against Durham on Tuesday, September 4 and will continue with the County Championship match against Nottinghamshire from September 6 to 9.

"We are delighted that we have been able to reschedule the Chesterfield festival so quickly to give everyone the chance to make arrangements for later in the season," Tom Sears, the county's chief executive, said. "I would like to thank Chesterfield Borough Council, Chesterfield Cricket Club, Durham, Nottinghamshire and the ECB for their understanding and cooperation and we now look forward to a very successful festival week, albeit slightly later that planned."
