Karl Krikken has confirmed that Tom Poynton is to become Derbyshire’s first-choice wicketkeeper following the recent retirement of Luke Sutton.

The Derbyshire Head Coach has moved quickly to distance the club from speculation regarding the signing of a replacement wicketkeeper and he has backed Poynton, an Academy graduate who made his first-class debut aged 17 in 2007, to take the gloves full-time.

Krikken said: “Tom has been earmarked as a Derbyshire wicketkeeper of the future for several years and he is now ready to become our number one for the position.
