1925 season

Guy Jackson was in his fourth season as captain. All the club's twenty-four first class matches were in the County Championship. The team recovered from a poor season in the previous year with five wins, but with fewer draws the high number of losses left the team in fourteenth place. Garnet Lee was top scorer in his first season as a first-class player for Derbyshire. Arthur Morton took most wickets with 63.

The most significant addition to the side was Garnet Lee who was to prove a valuable all-rounder over the next few years. Lee had previously played for Nottinghamshire but had taken two seasons at Derbyshire to work himself into the first team. Other players making their debut were Lionel Blaxland who played intermittently over several years Escott Loney and Wilfred Shardlow who played regularly for three seasons, and Eric Sykes who played three games in the season and re-appeared in 1932.
