They have been Northern League champions on five occasions, in 1972, 1975, 1985, 2004and 2012 and division two champions outright nine times, also sharing the title in 1985.
Notable former club professionals include Charlie Stayers, Bob Entwistle, Michael Whitney, Franklyn Stephenson and Paul Harris. Chesney Hughes, who played for the club as an amateur in 2009 was Derbyshire CCC's Player of the Year in 2010.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
