Derby County Football Club (/drbi kanti/) is a professional association
football club based in Derby, Derbyshire, England. Their home matches are played at
Pride Park Stadium, where the club moved in 1997.

Notable for being one of the 12 founder members of the Football League in 1888, it
is one of only 10 clubs to have competed in every season of the English football
league system and, in 2009, was ranked 137th in the top 200 European football teams
of the 20th century by International Federation of Football History and Statistics.
[1]

Derby County F.C. was founded in 1884, by William Morley, as an offshoot of


Derbyshire County Cricket Club; it has spent all but four seasons in the top two
divisions of English football. The club's competitive peak came in the 1970s when
they were twice English League Champions and competed in major European
competitions on four separate occasions, reaching the European Cup semi-finals, as
well as winning several minor trophies. They never won it though. Additionally, the
club was a strong force in the interwar years and won the 194546 FA Cup.

The club adopted its now traditional black and white club colours in the 1890s and
appropriated its club nickname The Rams, a tribute to its links with the First
Regiment of Derby Militia, which took a ram as its mascot and the song "The Derby
Ram" as its regimental song,[2] at the same time.

Chart of table positions of Derby County in the Football League


Beginning and early success[edit]
Derby County F.C. was formed in 1884 as an offshoot of Derbyshire County Cricket
Club in an attempt to give players and supporters a winter interest as well as
secure the cricket club extra revenue. The original intention was to name the club
"Derbyshire County F.C." to highlight the link, though the Derbyshire FA, formed in
1883, objected on the grounds it was too long and therefore would not have been
understood by the fans who may mistake it for a Derbyshire FA team. Playing their
home matches at the cricket clubs Racecourse Ground, 1884/85 saw the club
undertake an extensive programme of friendly matches, the first of which was a 60
defeat to Great Lever on 13 September 1884. The clubs first competitive match came
in the 1885 FA Cup, where they lost 70 at home to Walsall Town.

Arguably the most important game in the club's history came in the following
season's FA Cup, when a 20 victory over Aston Villa, already an emerging force in
English football, helped establish Derby County F.C. on the English football map,
helping the club to attract better opposition for friendlies and, in 1888, an
invitation into the inaugural Football League. The opening day of the first ever
league season was 8 September 1888, when Derby came from 30 down away to Bolton
Wanderers to win 63, though the club ultimately finished 10th out of 12 teams.
They absorbed another Derby club, Derby Midland F.C., who had been members of the
Midland League, in 1891, leaving them as Derby's sole professional football club.
Steve Bloomer, generally considered to be Derby County's best-ever player, joined
the club in 1892. In 1895 the club moved to a new stadium, the Baseball Ground (so
called because it was previously used for baseball), which became their home for
the next 102 years and adopted their traditional colours of black and white.
Although Derby were inconsistent in the league, they did finish runners-up to Aston
Villa in 1896 as well as achieving a number of third-place finishes. They were a
strong force in the FA Cup, appearing in three finals in six years around the turn
of the 20th century, though lost all three, in 1898 (31 to Nottingham Forest),[3]
1899 (41 to Sheffield United)[4] and 1903 (60 to Bury).[5]

Edwardian and interwar era[edit]


In 1906 Steve Bloomer was sold to Middlesbrough due to financial constraints, and
Derby subsequently suffered its first ever relegation the following season,[6] but
under Jimmy Methven's management they re-signed Bloomer and regained their First
Division place in 1911.[6] In 1914 they were relegated again, but instantly won the
Second Division to get promoted,[6] though World War I meant that they had to wait
until 1919 to play First Division football again. After two seasons, they were
relegated yet again in 1921. However, the appointment of George Jobey in 1925 kick-
started a successful period for the Rams and, after promotion in 1926,[6] the club
became a formidable force, with high finishes from the late 1920s and all through
the 1930s.,[6] including finishing runners up twice.

The Brian Clough and Peter Taylor statue


Derby were one of several clubs to close down after the outbreak of World War II
but restarted in the early 1940s, in part due to the persistence of Jack Nicholas
and Jack Webb. Aided by the recruitment of Raich Carter and Peter Doherty, who had
both been stationed in Loughborough during the War, Derby were one step ahead of
the opposition when competitive football resumed with the 1946 FA Cup and won their
first major trophy with a 41 victory over Charlton Athletic[7]

Post-war success and decline[edit]


The league restarted the following season after a break due to the Second World War
and, under the management of Stuart McMillan, as well as twice breaking the British
transfer record to sign Billy Steel and Johnny Morris to replace Carter and
Doherty, finished fourth and third in the 1948 and 1949 seasons respectively,
before a steady decline set in and the club was relegated in 1953, after nearly 30
years in the top flight, and again in 1955 to drop to the third tier of English
football for the first time in their history.[6] Harry Storer led Derby back into
the second tier at the second attempt in 1957, though the club progressed no
further over the next decade under either Storer or his successor, former Derby
player Tim Ward.

Brian Clough era[edit]


In 1967, Brian Clough and Peter Taylor took over and led them to their greatest
glory. Having clinched the influential signing of Dave Mackay, Derby were promoted
to the First Division in 1969, finished fourth in 1970,[6] were banned from
competing in Europe due to financial irregularities in 1971 and won their first
ever Football League Championship in 1972.[6] Though Derby did not retain their
title the following season, they did reach the semi-finals of the European Cup,
where they lost to Juventus. Clough's frequent outspoken comments against
football's establishment eventually led to him falling out with the board of
directors at the club, and Clough and Taylor left in October 1973. Such was their
impact on the club that, 37 years later, a 9 ft (2.75 metres) bronze statue of the
pair was erected outside Pride Park in commemoration of their legacy.[8]

Success and decline after Clough[edit]


Despite the departure of Clough and Taylor, Derby's League success was repeated in
the 197475 season when they won the title under successor Dave Mackay, who had
been a player under Clough when they had returned to the top flight in 1969.
However, Derby's form declined towards the end of the 1970s and they went down to
the Second Division in 1980 after a string of managers, including former Manchester
United boss Tommy Docherty, unsettled the club trying desperately to maintain its
place at the top of the First Division. Though they challenged well in their first
season, Derby were soon hit hard by rising debts, falling attendances and dismal
performances. Peter Taylor returned to the Baseball Ground as manager in early 1983
and kept Derby up that season, but he retired a year later just before Derby's
relegation to the Third Division for only the second time in their history.
However, Derby did manage to avoid going out of business, and they were soon under
the ownership of wealthy businessman Robert Maxwell.

1980s revival[edit]
After relegation to the Third Division in May 1984, the club appointed Arthur Cox
as manager. Although they missed out on promotion in Cox's first season as manager,
they then won back-to-back promotions and were back in the First Division for the
198788 season, with attendances also rising as the club's on-the-field fortunes
and financial position improved. The financial backing of new chairman Robert
Maxwell saw stars such as Peter Shilton, Mark Wright, Dean Saunders, Trevor Hebberd
and Ted McMinn brought to the club and they finished fifth in the 198889 season
However, English clubs were banned from European competition at the time following
the Heysel Stadium Disaster and so the Rams missed out on a place in the UEFA Cup.

End of the century[edit]


A lack of any further investment from Maxwell quickly led to a decline, culminating
in relegation back to the Second Division in 1991. At this time, local newspaper
businessman Lionel Pickering became the majority shareholder of the club, taking
control just before Maxwell's death in November 1991.

In 1992, Derby County paid 2.5 million for Notts County central defender Craig
Short, at the time and for five years afterwards the most expensive player to
be signed by a club outside the top flight, and indeed one of the highest fees paid
by any English club for a player at the time. Other expensive signings included
strikers Tommy Johnson and Marco Gabbiadini.

Cox's resignation as manager in October 1993 saw the appointment of legendary


former player Roy McFarland as manager. Derby reached the final of the Division One
playoffs that season, but were beaten by local rivals Leicester City. McFarland was
sacked a year later after Derby missed out on the playoffs, and his replacement was
Jim Smith a manager whose track record at his previous clubs included four
promotions and an FA Cup semi-final appearance.

Although the 199596 season started slowly, the signing of sweeper Igor timac in
the early autumn proved pivotal. Smith guided the Rams to a second-place finish and
the Premier League, now the top flight of English football. During that season, it
was announced that Derby would be leaving the Baseball Ground after more than 100
years to move into a new all-seater stadium, following earlier plans to develop the
Baseball Ground as a 26,000-seat stadium.

After finishing in 12th place in their first season back into the top flight, the
club left the Baseball Ground, its home of 102 years, to move into the new 33,597-
seat Pride Park Stadium for the 199798 season. The Baseball Ground was demolished
six years later and a memorial was eventually erected in memory of its role in
Derby city history.[9]

21st century[edit]
The club settled well into its new home as it recorded back-to-back top 10 finishes
for the first time since their 1970s peak, before a sudden decline at the turn of
the millennium saw three years of struggle. Smith resigned to be replaced by former
players, Colin Todd, who lasted just three months, and John Gregory before the Rams
were relegated after a six-year stay in the top flight, in 2002.

Derby County's relegation saw the club enter a serious financial crisis, which
forced them to sell many key players. Gregory was later suspended from his
managerial duties over alleged misconduct and former Ipswich Town boss George
Burley was brought in. The club was put into receivership then sold in October 2003
for 3 to a group led by Jeremy Keith. After finishing 20th in the 200304 season,
a dramatic improvement in the 200405 season saw Derby finish fourth in the
Football League Championship, qualifying for a promotion play-off spot, though they
lost in the semi-finals to Preston North End. Soon afterwards, Burley resigned
citing differences between himself and the board. He was replaced by Bolton first
team coach, Phil Brown. In January 2006, Brown was sacked after a poor run of
results. Terry Westley, the academy coach at the time, took over first team duties
until the end of the season and saved Derby from relegation.

In April 2006 a consortium of local businessmen led by former vice-chairman Peter


Gadsby bought the club, reducing its debt and returning Pride Park Stadium to the
club's ownership in the process. In June 2006, former Preston North End boss Billy
Davies was appointed Derby County's new permanent manager. In his first season,
Davies took Derby to the Championship play-offs, where they beat Southampton on
penalties in the semi-finals before defeating West Bromwich Albion 10 with a
second-half Stephen Pearson goal at the new Wembley Stadium to secure a return to
the Premier League and the associated 60m windfall. In October 2007, Peter Gadsby
stepped down as chairman to be replaced by former Hull City owner Adam Pearson, who
immediately began searching for investment from overseas.[10] After a poor start to
the season, manager Billy Davies left by mutual consent in November.[11] He was
succeeded by Paul Jewell,[12] who failed to save the club as Derby suffered the
Premier League's earliest ever relegation, in March,[13] recorded the Premier
League's lowest-ever points total,[14] and equalled Loughborough's 108-year
Football League record of going through an entire season with only one win. In
January, the club was taken over by an international investment group led by
General Sports and Entertainment, with Pearson remaining as de facto chairman.[15]

Derby's match at home to Sheffield United on 13 September 2008 generated much media
coverage as it was approaching a year since Derby's last league win, a run which
saw the club break the English league record for most matches without a win. Just
four days short of the anniversary of the 10 victory over Newcastle, Rob Hulse
scored against his former club as Derby ran out 21 winners, earning Paul Jewell
his first league win as Derby boss at his 27th attempt. Despite taking the club to
the League Cup semi-final, the club's first major cup semi-final since 1976, where
Derby lost 43 to Manchester United over two legs, Jewell resigned as manager in
December 2008 after a run of just two wins in 11 matches.[16] He was replaced by
Nigel Clough,[17] son of former manager Brian. He led the club to 18th place and
safety. After two seasons that saw the club finish in the bottom half of the table,
Derby finished the two subsequent seasons in 12th and 10th place.

Club crest and colours[edit]


Crest[edit]

Derby County's badge from 1946


Like most old football clubs, Derby County did not initially have any badge
displayed on their shirts. Their first badge was introduced in 1924. The badge
consisted of a circular shield split into three equally sized sections,
representing the club, its fans and the area, all containing items traditionally
associated with the city of Derby: a Tudor rose and a crown in one section, a buck
in a park in the second and a ram's head in the final section. The badge was worn
on the players' shirts for just two seasons before they reverted to plain shirts.
By 1934, another badge had been introduced. This time it was a traditionally shaped
shield, again with three sections. The buck in the park had been removed and the
rose and the crown had been split up and now occupied a section each. The ram's
head also remained and was now given the largest section of the shield. The badge
never appeared on the players' shirts. The shield was modified in 1946 when the
rose and crown were removed and replaced with the letters DC (Derby County) and FC
(Football Club) respectively. The badge, right, was featured on to the player's
shirts from its introduction onwards, though the ram's head on its own was used
from the late 1960s (the full shield, however, remained the club's official logo).

Derby County's badge from 1997 to 2007


A new club badge was introduced in 1971, featuring a more modern design that, with
modifications, is still in use. The badge was initially consisted of a stylised
white ram facing left. The badge was first modified slightly in 1979 to include the
text 'Derby County FC' under the ram (though the ram remained on its own on away
kits). In 1982 the ram turned to face to the right and the text under it was
removed. The ram was surrounded by a wreath of laurel and the text 'Centenary 1984
1985' was printed underneath for the club's centenary season. The laurel was
removed and the text reading 'Derby County FC' returned from the next season. In
1993, the ram faced left again and the text was removed once more. From 1995, the
ram faced right and was enclosed in a diamond, with a gold banner reading 'Derby
County FC' underneath and the text '1884' (the year of the club's foundation)
underneath that. The design was changed again in 1997 (see left): the ram faced now
left and the golden banner now simply read 'Derby County'; the diamond and year of
formation were removed.

Derby County's badge from 2009 to 2013, a version of this badge with gold trim was
used from 2007 to 2009.
A decade later, in 2007, the badge was modified again with the ram still facing
left and the text 'Est. 1884' now in the middle of a circular frame featuring
'Derby County Football Club' in gold lettering, with the colours being modified to
the club colours of black and white in 2009 (see top of page). In July 2012, the
club announced its intention to show only the iconic ram on future shirts, rather
than the full club logo. In July 2013, this traditional ram became the club's full
logo again.

Colours[edit]
Derby County's original colours (right) were amber, chocolate and blue, though by
the 1890s the club had adopted its now traditional colours of black and white,
which are still in use today. In the 1970s and 80s, colours for home matches were
white shirts with small blue or red touches (on the club badge or shirt makers
insignia), blue shorts and socks that were blue, red, white or a combination of the
three.[18] The colours of away kits have varied widely, and although they are
usually yellow/gold or blue, the colour for the away kit for the 200809 season was
fluorescent green.[19] The club also introduced a surprise third kit in August
2008. Similar in design to the club's away kit of the 1970s, with blue and white
stripes and reminiscent of the Argentina strip, the style was re-introduced
following feedback from fans who said it was one of their favourite kits from the
club's past.[20]

Derby County's mascot, Rammie


Club mascot[edit]
Derby's mascot is a ram named Rammie. Rammie is a full-time employee of the club
who also works to maintain the club's links with fans and the East Midlands in
general, such as school visits to promote literacy and charity events.[21][22]
Rammie originally emerged as a more friendly option to the club's traditional links
with the British Army.

Rammie was the first full-time mascot in British football.[23][24] Rammie's


traditional activities include penalty shoot-outs with members of the crowd at half
time, with Rammie as goalkeeper, and warming the crowd up before the match and
encouraging the Derby fans during matches. Rammie is a very popular figure amongst
Rams' fans[25][26] and, in 2005, released his first DVD, which features the
character reading from Aesop's Fables in the Derbyshire countryside.[23]

Shortly thereafter, Rammie was joined by a female equivalent, named Eweie. Eweie
did not last very long at Pride Park, however, and took a reported "vacation" to
the United States. She returned from a 10-year exile on 3 October 2015, at a home
match against Brentford F.C.[27]

Stadium[edit]

Pride Park Stadium has been Derby's home since 1997


As an offshoot of Derbyshire County Cricket Club, Derby Countys first home stadium
was County Cricket Ground, also known as the Racecourse Ground, where the club
played its league and FA Cup matches between 1884 and 1895. Although the ground
itself was good enough to hold the first FA Cup final match outside London, when
Blackburn Rovers beat W.B.A. 20 in the 1886 FA Cup final replay[28] and a full
England international, disputes over fixture clashed between the football and
cricket clubs meant that when the opportunity to play at Sir Francis Leys Baseball
Ground arose, the club accepted.[29]

Commonly referred to amongst supporters as "the BBG", the club moved to the
Baseball Ground in 1895 and remained there for the next 102 years, despite
opportunities to move in the 1920s and 1940s.[29][30] Derby had already played
there, a 10 win over Sunderland during the 189192 season, as an alternative venue
after a fixture clash at the County Ground. At its peak during the late 1960s, the
ground could hold around 42,000 the clubs record attendance achieved following
the opening of the Ley Stand with a 41,826 crowd watching a 50 defeat of Tottenham
Hotspur on 20 September 1969.[29] From this peak, the continued addition of seating
saw the capacity drop over the next 15 years to 26,500 in 1985.

Following the Taylor Report in 1989, and the legal requirement for all seater
stadia, the grounds capacity dwindled to just 18,500 by the mid-1990s, not enough
for the then ambitious second tier club. Despite initially hoping to rebuild the
Baseball Ground to hold 26,000 spectators, and rejecting the offer of two sites
elsewhere in Derby, then-chairman Lionel Pickering announced in February 1996 the
intention to move to a new, purpose built stadium at the newly regenerated Pride
Park, with the last ever first team game at the Baseball Ground being in May 1997,
a 13 home defeat to Arsenal, though it continued to host reserve games until 2003.
Derby's new ground, named Pride Park Stadium, was officially opened by the Queen on
18 July, with a friendly against Sampdoria following on 4 August.

Derby hold the unique distinction of being the only club to have had three home
grounds host full England internationals. England beat Ireland 90 at the
Racecourse Ground in 1895, beat Ireland again, 21, at the Baseball Ground in 1911
and, most recently, Pride Park hosted England's 40 win over Mexico in May 2001.
[31]

Pride Park was renamed the iPro Stadium on 7 December 2013, as part of a 10-year,
7 million sponsorship deal with global sports drink company iPro.

At the beginning of 2017, the iPro Stadium reverted to its original name of Pride
Park Stadium.

Supporters and rivalry[edit]


Support[edit]
Derby is often acknowledged as a 'passionate football town' by rival supporters[32]
and the press alike. Tony Francis of The Daily Telegraph noted: "Derby is a
passionate football town... Even in Division Two, it's a reasonable bet that crowds
at Pride Park would not fall far below 20,000. It's historical, it's geographical,
it's in the blood. Some places have it, some don't."[33] During the 20072008
Premiership season Derby County fans were repeatedly referred to as the best in the
country due to their loyalty despite the club's disastrous campaign.[34] Almost
every home game at Pride Park Stadium was sold out by the Derby fans and the club
also had a large following away from home. The recognition included them being
named fans of the season in much national coverage of the season, winning an award
from Nuts magazine,[35] and being named the most loyal supporters in the country in
a 2008 survey by Sky Sports Magazine.[36] In 2013, Derby supporter Nick Webster was
voted Championship Fan of the Year.[37]

Statistically, the club had the 12th highest average attendance in the country in
the 200708 season,[38] 200809,[39] and 200910 seasons[40] despite only having
the 15th largest club ground and finishing 18th or lower in their respective
division. In 2008/09 they were the best supported club in the Championship, with a
larger average attendance than nine Premiership clubs, and had the Football
Leagues's single largest league match attendance, with 33,079 against Wolverhampton
Wanderers on 13 April 2009.

Derby's celebrity supporters include actor Robert Lindsay, One Direction singer
Niall Horan,[41] Blur guitarist Graham Coxon[42] The Gaslight Anthem guitarist Alex
Rosamilia[43] and actor Jack O'Connell.[44] It has been reported that O'Connell has
persuaded other celebrities to support the club, including actors George
Clooney[45] and Angelina Jolie,[46] and model Cara Delevingne.[47]

Rivals[edit]
Derby's primary rival clubs are Nottingham Forest, Leicester City and Leeds United,
[48] with Forest, based in Nottingham, 14 miles east of Derby, being by far the
fiercest rivals; a 2008 survey named the rivalry the 11th biggest in English
football, revealing that 9 out of 10 fans from both clubs point to the other as
their fiercest rival.[49] Meetings between the side are known as East Midlands
derbies and the winning team is awarded the Brian Clough Trophy. The rivalry as a
whole largely developed from the 1970s, due to former Derby manager Brian Clough
taking over at Forest, much to the anger of the Derby fans; in fact some
commentators have described the rivalry to be as much about which club owns
Clough's heart as much as the proximity of the clubs geographically.[50]

The rivalry with Leicester City stems largely from geographical location rather
than any shared history.[51]

Leeds United are disliked due to ongoing friction from the early 1970s when Derby
and Leeds were two of the top English teams and the scarcely concealed hostility
between their respective managers, Brian Clough and Don Revie.[51] The rivalry is
documented in the novel and film The Damned United. This rivalry is stronger on
Derby's side; whilst Derby consider Leeds their 2nd biggest rivals, Leeds fans
focus more on their dislike of Manchester United and Chelsea.[48]

Managers[edit]
Main article: List of Derby County F.C. managers
Below is a list of all the permanent managers that Derby County have had since the
appointment of Harry Newbould in 1900.[57] In the 16 years prior to Newbould's
appointment, the team was selected by club committee, a standard practice by
football clubs at the time. The club is currently without a manager having fired
Steve McClaren on 12 March 2017. He replaced Nigel Pearson, following his dismissal
on 8 October 2016, after a suspension period. He lasted less than five months in
charge and was replaced by McClaren, who himself only lasted five months after
being sacked again on 12 March 2017. Gary Rowett was named as his successor on 14
March 2017 and was handed a contract until the end of the 2018/19 season.

Club academy[edit]
Moor Farm[edit]
Derby County's academy, called Moor Farm, is a purpose-built complex situated near
the city suburb of Oakwood. It was built in 2003, at a cost of 5m,[58] to replace
the club's previous academy, The Ram-Arena, which was based at Raynesway. It covers
50 acres (200,000 m2) and features six full-sized training pitches plus an indoor
pitch and includes a gym, restaurant, ProZone room and a laundry.[58] When opening
the academy, then-Chairman Lionel Pickering said that the intent was to have "at
least eight players from the Academy... in the first-team within three years."[58]
Although this wasn't achieved, the academy produced a number of notable players
such as England international midfielder Tom Huddlestone, Wales international
defender Lewin Nyatanga, Northern Ireland international goalkeeper Lee Camp,
England under-21s players Miles Addison and Lee Grant. Also England under-19 player
Giles Barnes.

In April 2009 new manager Nigel Clough announced his intention to restructure the
academy, appointing former Derby players Darren Wassall and Michael Forsyth[59] and
Wolves Academy director John Perkins to the backroom staff, replacing the departed
Phil Cannon, David Lowe and Brian Burrows.[60] Following this, and an increased
investment of 1m-a-year from the club,[61] a number of players broke through to
the first team squad; ahead of the 201011 season, almost a third of the Derby
squad were academy graduates, with Mason Bennett setting the club record for
youngest first team appearance when he made his full debut with a start in a defeat
at Middlesbrough on 22 October 2011 at the age of 15 years and 99 days old.[62]
This helped strengthen the academy's reputation[63] and reinforced CEO Tom Glick's
stated desire to make Moor Farm "the academy of choice in the Midlands."[63] In
August 2012, Derby's academy became a tier 2 academy under the new controversial
Elite Player Performance Plan.[64] It was awarded Tier 1 status two years later in
July 2014.[65]

Derby County F.C. All Time First XI
As part of the club's 125th Anniversary celebrations,[67] it was announced that
during 2009 each month a vote would be carried out to decide on the club's official
All Time XI, starting in February 2009 with the goalkeeper, with the following
eight months offering opportunities for Derby's support to select a team based
within a 442 formation, with December's vote being reserved for the manager.[68]
Voting closed on the 25th of each month, with the winner being announced in the
following few days.[69]

Top 10 Derby goals[edit]
On 2 June 2009, the Club announced the supporters choice of the Top 10 Goals in the
club's history, with the fans then asked again to choose their favourite from the
10 nominated. The list was obviously biased in favour of more recent goals, largely
thanks to the increased coverage modern football enjoys. Three goals featured from
the club's 2008/09 campaign.[79] The winners were announced on 22 June 2009.[80]

Derby County in Europe[edit]
Main article: Derby County F.C. in Europe
Derby first competed in Europe when they entered the 197273 European Cup after
winning the 197172 First Division Title,[81] reaching the semi-final stages, where
they lost 31 on aggregate to Juventus in controversial circumstances. They had
qualified for the 197071 Fairs Cup after finishing the 196970 First Division in
4th, but were banned from entering the competition for financial irregularities.
The 70s was the Derby Countys peak in English football and they qualified for
Europe in three of the next four seasons, competing in the UEFA Cup or the European
Cup in each of the three seasons between 197475 and 197677.

The club then declined rapidly and has not appeared in the top European
competitions since, though it finished in 5th in the 1989 First Division which
would have guaranteed entry into the 198990 UEFA Cup but English Clubs were banned
from Europe following the Heysel Stadium Disaster.

Outside of major competition, the club competed in the Anglo-Italian Cup between
199293 and 199495, reaching the final in 1993, losing 31 to Cremonese at
Wembley.

Records and statistics[edit]


For more details on this topic, see List of Derby County F.C. records and
statistics.
For more details on this topic, see Derby County F.C. league record by opponent.
Kevin Hector holds the record for Derby County appearances in all competitions,
turning out 589 times in two separate spells with the club between 1966 and 1982.
He sits ahead of Ron Webster who played 535 times for the club, often in the same
team as Hector. Just counting league appearances, Hector is again in the lead, with
486 appearances, ahead of Jack Parry, who played 483 times for the club between
1948 and 1967.

The club's all-time top scorer is Steve Bloomer, often referred to as Football's
First Superstar, who netted 332 goals for the club in two spells between 1892 and
1914. He is over 100 goals ahead of second in the list Kevin Hector, who netted 201
goals for the club. Jack Bowers holds the club record for most goals in a single
season, when he scored 43 goals (35 in the league and a further 8 in the FA Cup),
during the 193233 season.

The club's record attendance is 41,826, for a First Division match against
Tottenham Hotspur at the Baseball Ground on 20 September 1969, which Derby won 50.
The record is unlikely to be broken in the near future as Derby's current stadium,
Pride Park has a limit of 33,597 spectators. The record attendance at Pride Park
for a competitive Derby County match is 33,378 for a Premier League match against
Liverpool on 18 March 2000. The largest crowd to ever watch a Derby County game is
120,000 when Derby County played Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabu Stadium in
the 197576 European Cup.

Derby hold several records in English football. The 200708 Premier League campaign
saw the club equal Loughborough's all-time league record of just one win in an
entire league season. They also equalled or set several Premier league records
(1992present), including Least Home Wins in a Season (1, joint with Sunderland)
and Least Away Wins in a Season (0, joint with 5 other teams) and Most Defeats in a
Season (29). Records set included Fewest Points in a season (3 points for a win)
with 11, Fewest Goals Scored (20) and Worst Goal Difference (69). The club also
holds the record for Most Consecutive League Games Without A Win, with 37 matches
between 22 September 2007 and 13 September 2008, and the Record Defeat in an FA Cup
Final, when they lost 60 to Bury in 1903.[82]
