Derbyshire County Cricket Club in 1937 was the cricket season when the English club Derbyshire had been playing for sixty six years. It was their thirty-ninth season in the County Championship and they came third after winning the Championship in 1936.

1937 season[edit]

Derbyshire played 28 games in the County Championship, and one match against the touring New Zealanders. They won 15 matches including the game against the New Zealanders and lost six to finish third in the County Championship.

Robin Buckston took over the captaincy having last played for the club in the 1928 season. Denis Smith was top scorer. Thomas Mitchell took most wickets but Bill Copson made a particular impression taking eight wickets for eleven runs against Warwickshire in the first innings at Derby which included four wickets with successive balls. [1] Worthington also played for England in Test matches touring Australia.

Albert Rhodes began his long and successful bowling career for Derbyshire during the season. The only other newcomer, Howard Sherwin played one career first class match for the club in 1937.
