Derbyshire County Cricket Club has lifted the lid on its new 2022 kits with the help of Derby Cathedral.

The club, in collaboration with long-time sportswear partner SAMURAI, has unveiled its new kits for the forthcoming season – and produced a launch video, which was filmed at the cathedral.

The team’s new Vitality Blast kit features a geometric falcon emblazoned across the shirt, in homage to the nesting falcons at the cathedral, from which Derbyshire’s Twenty20 team name derives.

For the 2022 LV= County Championship campaign, Derbyshire will revert to a more traditional shade of cream, with elements of the club’s tri-colour on the sleeves and trousers, while a new range of training wear also retains links to the club’s history as well as its future.

SAMURAI is also producing Derbyshire’s Royal London Cup kit, which is set to be released later this summer.

Ryan Duckett, chief executive at Derbyshire, said: “SAMURAI’s rebrand gave us a unique opportunity to collaborate for a new set of kit and leisurewear unlike anything we’ve ever had before, and they have delivered with real quality.

“This is a close and longstanding partnership which stretches beyond the garments themselves.

“SAMURAI have listened to all of our ideas and requests for the kit and have produced a range, which will not only look brilliant on the field, but also encompasses the identity and values of our community.

“The kits will be worn proudly by players and supporters alike, and it’s exciting to see us begin a new era for the club in such a striking way.”
