Marehay CC find themselves in the unusual position of starting their season with a cup final this weekend.
On Sunday, they will take on Matlock CC in the 2012 Derbyshire County League T20 Final.
The competition was due to have been settled at the end of last season and Marehay made it through the semi-final, played at the County Ground, Derby, before the heavens opened and put paid to any chance of playing the final there and then.
The decision was taken by the league to postpone the final to the start of this season and the two teams will battle it out for an early piece of silverware on Sunday at Alfreton CC.
Only players registered with their respective club at the time of last year’s postponed final will be eligible to play.
All are welcome to come along and watch on the day.
The match is due to start at 2pm.
The new Derbyshire Premier and County League season kicks off on the following weekend.
