Redfern played league cricket in Staffordshire for Leycett
Derbyshire batsman Dan Redfern believes Leek is a good venue to stage the t20 match against Warwickshire on Sunday.
The Falcons will be playing at Leek for the second successive year, having lost a Pro40 match to Essex in May 2010.
Redfern told BBC Radio Stoke: "That game against Essex was really successful. It's a nice little ground.
"Leek is a club that's very well known in Staffordshire as a strong club in the local league system and a good venue to host a T20 game."
The 21-year-old, who has yet to play in the domestic t20 competition in 2011, grew up playing league cricket for Staffordshire club Leycett and is well aware of the interest in cricket in the area.
"I've played league cricket there for the last six or seven years and it's a massive part of the summer," he continued.
"Teams would always put out good sides and the standard is very good. It's one of the stronger leagues around."
Derbyshire, currently sixth in their group, take on Worcestershire on Friday in their only match before facing Warwickshire.
