Derby County comment: It’s time for Rams to get the ending they deserve



The city of Derby clutches its breath in suspense, but this is the day the county can regain its destiny. They have risen from the ashes to become a proud football team once more in an incredible story fit for a phoenix.

This week, exactly two years ago, Derby was still getting over their Championship relegation—the lowest point in their history.

The team was facing financial difficulties, a transfer ban was shackling its future, and many believed they were heading for disintegration. Thousands of supporters marched to Pride Park during that nerve-wracking season to show how important the team was to them, the city, and the community.

The Save Derby County movement was not just about bringing attention to the predicament of one of the Football League’s founding members, but also about love and devotion. This week, supporters have shared images from their rally day on social media to highlight how, in contrast to the team that is on the verge of success, tomorrow’s trek to Pride Park could not be more significant.

The Championship is beckoning once more in this incredible story of redemption under David Clowes, the reluctant hero who saved Derby from extinction in June of 2022. It only takes a point at Carlisle United this afternoon to guarantee promotion and validate an incredible campaign.

This team has not only won 13 games away from home, which is more than any other Derby team in history, but it has also already surpassed the club record for points earned in a single season. In that regard, the season has already been one to remember, and throughout the past nine months, a gifted bunch of players have demonstrated both quality and spirit.

The outstanding backroom crew of Richie Barker, Matt Hamshaw, and Andy Warrington, together with head coach Paul Warne, have all handled everything beautifully. Paul has led with humility, grace, and great leadership. Now all that remains is the appropriate conclusion that Clowes, Warne, his players, the club personnel, and the supporters all deserve.

It all comes down to this last-day task after thousands of minutes, miles, and forty-five games in the third division of English football.As the supporters get ready to cheer their team one last time to help the class of 2023–24 write their name in history, Pride Park will be raucous and proud.

Derby hopes to throw an incredible party with the setup they’ve made.
