The club reports a financial surplus for the sixth year in a row.

The pair added 45 in 20 overs to carry Derbyshire to a second batting point after Joe Leach had taken two wickets in consecutive overs to finish with figures of 4 for 50.

Ed Barnard took the last two wickets as Derbyshire were bowled out for 275 with wicketkeeper Ben Cox celebrating his 200th first-class catch when he held an edge from Taylor.

Worcestershire were left with a tricky 20 minutes batting before lunch but Daryl Mitchell and Brett D’Oliveira negotiated five overs to reach 24 for 0 at the interval.
