Leicestershire Second XI lost their four-day friendly at Derbyshire by 238 runs on the final day.
Set 417 to win, Leicestershire resumed on 35-0 but were bowled out for 178, slow left armer Tom Knight claiming 5-60 to go with his fine game with the willow.
Academy player Aadil Ali made a fine half-century for Leicestershire while Angus Robson (pictured right) scored 48 to go with his hundred in the first innings but the home side kept chipping away.
Michael Thornely (11) was caught by Scott Elstone off Alasdair Evans (12-1-34-1) without adding to his overnight score with the score on 39.
County then went from 61-2 to 75-4 as Karl Turner (7) was caught by Elstone off Ben Cotton (14-3-27-1) before Robson (bowled) and Will Edwards (caught Greg Cork) became victims of Knight.
Ali played a cracking innings but further wickets fell as Eben Kurtz (7) was caught behind off Jonathan Marsden (8-1-15-1), Knight dismissed Rob Sayer (6) leg before and Tom Moores (7) was trapped in front by Wes Durston (13-5-30-1).
Ali and Dominic Reed, who smashed four fours in a 16-ball 26, added 35 before Knight had Reed caught by Luke Thomas. Ali then progressed to his half-century before being bowled by Knight.
With Nathan Buck and Atif Sheikh injured, and Tom Wells having joined up with the first team, Leicestershire’s innings came to an end when they were nine wickets down.
Leicestershire Second XI have one fixture remaining, a three-day friendly against Glamorgan at Cardiff CC next week.
