Left-arm spinner David Wainwright has been handed a four year contract as reward for his outstanding performances this season.
The Yorkshire born bowler has been a revelation for Derbyshire since he travelled south from Headingley Carnegie last autumn in the search for greater first team opportunities.
Wainwright made an immediate impact on first-class debut for Derbyshire when he propelled the side to a memorable victory against Northamptonshire back in April. With the game finely poised going into day four, Wainwright took control with an unbroken spell of 26 overs that yielded remarkable figures of 6 for 33.
Wainwright’s first-class record with the ball this year has been particularly impressive, with 27 wickets at an average of 27 apiece, three five wicket hauls and over a century of maiden overs.

Karl Krikken’s men looked dead and buried against their promotion rivals after collapsing to 132 all out in reply to the visitors’ 265 on Day 2.
But seven-wicket heroics from Tony Palladino yesterday, followed by a stout batting performance from Dan Redfern (pictured) today, handed the leaders a priceless victory.
