Profile

Personal tragedy struck for Tom Poynton only a few days before the start of the 2014 season when his father Keith died in a car accident while driving a Ferrari loaned out by the club chairman, Chris Grant, who had bought it that day. Tom, who was a passenger in the car, also suffered serious leg injuries. It was an emotional period for the entire Derbyshire club and Poynton, who missed the entire season and needed an ankle operation, found a role for Derbyshire promoting community projects. He returned to indoor training in November with the intention of furthering his cricketing career.
