Derbyshire Country Cricket Club in 1894 was the cricket season when the English club Derbyshire had been playing for twenty three years. Derbyshire's matches were re-accorded first class status in this season but they did not start to take part in the County Championship until the following season.

1894 season[edit]

The captains of the leading counties determined that in 1894 Derbyshire with Essex, Leicestershire and Warwickshire , should be given first-class status. The match results did not count in the County Championship until 1895, when Hampshire was also admitted.[1] Derbyshire played eleven first-class games including one against MCC. They played three other matches which were against Hampshire and the touring South Africans.

Sydney Evershed - captain

Derbyshire won six of their first class matches and lost four with one drawn. The three other matches were two draws and a loss to Hampshire. Sydney Evershed was in his fourth season as captain. Several players played for other first-class teams, and so the top scorer and wicket-taker in Derbyshire's first-class matches was George Davidson.

Most of the team had played for Derbyshire in the 1887 season or before and had continued playing during the interval. Those who had joined in the interval and made their first-class debuts were Charles Evans, Samuel Malthouse, Daniel Bottom, stand -in wicket-keeper Frank Mycroft and William Delacombe. Those who made their Derbyshire debut in 1894 and played subsequently were Samuel Hill-Wood future MP, baronet and chairman of Arsenal, William Locker footballer and George Marsden lawyer. In addition John Young colliery carpenter played two career first class matches and Albert Widdowson farm hand played one career first class match in the season.
