Derby County

Former Nottingham Forest and Derby County striker reveals exciting new venture as amazing 22-year career nears end



The striker helped the Spiriteites qualify for the playoffs in 2021 after making 30 appearances for them over the course of two seasons in 2020.

While Tyson was at the club, he sent messages to Danny Webb and Liam Mandeville congratulating them on winning the National League title.

He told the DT, “I am extremely proud of Chesterfield.” “I wish we could have completed it during my visit.” A few years ago, we were probably not ready, but we came very close.

Tyson, who spent much of his career in the Championship but also experienced League Two with Wycombe Wanderers, is rooting for the Blues to have another great season. Tyson has warm memories of the Town supporters.

“They are ready to compete in League Two, and I don’t mean just stay up—I think they can make it to the playoffs,” he declared.

Tyson, who turns 42 on Saturday, has been playing football on a part-time basis with demoted teams this season, including Ilkeston Town, Basford United, and Long Eaton United. According to Tyson, this might mean that his 22-year career comes to a close on a “sad” note.

The former Derby County and Nottingham Forest player rates his chances of playing football again next season as “low,” citing other commitments that raise a “question mark.”

The attacker believes that he may now need to “sever connections” with football. He began playing the sport when he was just eight years old, and although he still likes it, he believes that other players have taken the “fun” aspect of the game away from him.

Tyson claimed that playing part-time football has been a “shock to the system” and that the “politics” of the game prevented him from ever holding a managerial or coaching position.

Even though Tyson’s football career may not be going as planned, he still has an amazing chance with Mini Athletics, a company that uses exercise to help kids develop their social, cognitive, and physical abilities. By September, his own project—which will have its headquarters in Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire—will be operational.

Athletics holds great value for Tyson, as his mother was an avid athlete and lost suddenly tragically at the end of 2022.

“That has a good deal of sentimentality in it,” he continued. “I desired to take a different approach. I am quite thrilled about it.
