Morris wants to tackle Derbyshire 'shambles'

John Morris, the former Derbyshire and England batsman, has put his name forward as a candidate for election to the Derbyshire committee

13-Feb-2004
John Morris, the former England batsman, has put his name forward as a candidate for election to the Derbyshire committee.
"The way the club has been run has been a shambles," he told The Daily Telegraph. "Since retiring in 2001, I've spent a lot of time at the County Ground and very little of what I have seen, on or off the field, has given me any satisfaction."
Morris scored 13489 runs at 40.26 in an eleven-year career with Derbyshire. He also played for Durham and Nottinghmashire.
Derbyshire have suffered several years of poor performances and internal unrest. At the end of last summer Dominic Cork left by mutual consent, and county chairman Trevor Bowring said that it marked "the beginning of a new era, an era of development both on and off the field to which we are all looking forward."
It appears, however, that Derbyshire are set for another difficult season.
