Derbyshire County Cricket Club in 1904 was the cricket season when the English club Derbyshire had been playing for thirty three years. It was their tenth season in the County Championship and they won five matches to finish tenth in the Championship table.


1904 season

In addition to eighteen games in the County Championship, Derbyshire played one game against MCC, one against the touring South Africans and two against Grace's London County side. They won seven matches overall. Dr Maynard Ashcroft was in his only season as captain. Charles Ollivierre was top scorer and Arnold Warren took most wickets.

The season saw one of Derbyshire's most accomplished performances - the defeat of Essex by nine wickets at Chesterfield. Essex made 597 in their first innings, P. A. Perrin scoring 343 not out, and looked to be in a commanding position. However Derbyshire replied with 548, Olliviere making 229, and dismissed Essex for 97 in the second innings. Derbyshire lost only one wicket in their second innings for 149, with Olliviere 92 not out and won by nine wickets.

George Stevenson was the only new player in the season and played his only two matches for the club in the year.
