Derbyshire County Cricket Club in 1913 was the cricket season when the English club Derbyshire had been playing for forty two years. It was their nineteenth season in the County Championship and they won four matches to finish thirteenth in the Championship table.


1913 season

Derbyshire played eighteen matches which were all in the County Championship. After winning their first three matches convincingly the team's form declined and they did not win again until the last match of the season.

Richard Baggallay was in his first year as captain. Leonard Oliver scored most runs and Thomas Forrester took most wickets.

First class cricket was suspended for the duration of the war, and most of the new players in the season had their potential limitied after 1914. Of the players who made their debut the greatest contributor was Harold Wild who played 32 matches in four seasons. Thomas Revill also played intermittently over four seasons. Norton Hughes-Hallett played in the two seasons before the war, while Terence Cole and Willie Smith only appeared in the 1913 season.
