Derbyshire County Cricket Club in 1928 was the cricket season when the English club Derbyshire had been playing for fifty seven years. It was their thirtieth season in the County Championship and they won six matches to finish tenth in the County Championship..

1928 season[edit]

Derbyshire played 26 games in the County Championship, and one match each against the touring West Indies, Oxford University and MCC. Their six wins were all in the County Championship, while they drew with Oxford University and lost to the West Indies.

Guy Jackson was in his seventh season as captain. The season saw the arrival of three players who were significant in the club's victory in the County Championship in the 1936 season, including the captain of the team Arthur Walker Richardson. Thomas Mitchell was a miner who changed to cricket as a result of the General Strike and in the next 10 years took over 1200 wickets for Derbyshire. Albert Alderman came though Sam Cadman's coaching scheme and scored over 12000 runs for Derbyshire in the next 20 years. Two of the Hill Wood brothers Charles and Denis made their debuts and went on the play a couple of seasons for Derbyshire. Charles was at Oxford where he also played. Cecil Tate son of Fred Tate the coach played four matches but only in the 1928 season, and subsequently went to Warwickshire. Robin Buckston son of former captain George Buckston and George Beet son of former wicket-keeper George Beet both made single appearances as stand-in wicket-keepers in the season although Buckston returned in the 1937 season as captain.

Harry Storer was top scorer and Leslie Townsend took most wickets.
