Derbyshire's relegation back to Division Two of the LV= County Championship was confirmed as they suffered an innings defeat against Warwickshire.
The hosts were doomed to the drop at Derby from the moment they were bowled out for 103 in their first innings; their failure to pick up any bonus points meant that Nottinghamshire and Somerset were both safe.
Asked to have another go by the Bears, Derbyshire didn't fair much better second time around. They mustered 120-9 and with Tony Palladino unable to bat, went down by an innings and 168 runs with well over a day to spare.
Shivnarine Chanderpaul did his best to try and rescue his side from their precarious overnight position of 44-5 in the morning session, making 52.
However the West Indian left-hander was eventually trapped lbw by Keith Barker, ending a defiant 49-run stand with wicketkeeper Tom Poynton and leaving the score at 88-6.
The same bowler then dismissed David Wainwright for seven to bring up his five-wicket haul, while Poynton (19) became Boyd Rankin's one-and-only victim of the innings to make it 92-8.
Wicketkeeper Stuart Poynter clung on to a diving catch after Tim Groenewald had gloved a rising delivery from Maurice Chambers (3-27) having managed four, leaving Derbyshire on the brink of being bowled out.
However, Warwickshire didn't even have to take a 10th and final wicket to wrap up the innings, Palladino being forced to retire hurt after being struck on the hand by a ball from Rankin.
Sent in again facing a deficit of 288, Derbyshire were soon in early trouble as Chris Woakes - fresh off hitting an unbeaten 152 in the away side's total of 391-9 declared, claimed three wickets to reduce them to 38-5.
Poynton at least dragged their score into three figures, hitting three fours and a six as he made an entertaining 41 from just 43 deliveries.
His fun was eventually ended by Jeetan Patel, and when the spinner bowled Groenewald with the first ball of his second over the match was done and dusted.
