Profile

For Dan Birch cricket runs in the family. His father spent 16 years with Nottinghamshire, playing over 250 games from 1973 to 1988, and Dan was on the books at Trent Bridge as a schoolboy. He spent eight years playing in the Derbyshire Premier League and eventually things started to happen for him in 2006 when he played at second-team level for Kent. Two half-centuries on his debut, as well as a century against the MCC Young Cricketers in a 50-over match, earned him a one-year contract at Derbyshire and he immediately repaid their faith by scoring 130 against Cambridge UCCE at Fenners in the season opener.
