The Who's Who of Derby County

Gerald Mortimer

In the years since Derby County played their first game in the Football League in 1888, hundreds of footballers have pulled on a Rams shirt to represent the club in first-class competitive matches. In this revised and updated edition of his classic reference work, Gerald Mortimer has detailed the careers of every single one of those players, whether they are household names or men who made only a handful of appearances at the Baseball Ground or Pride Park.

The book is highly illustrated throughout, and various statistics are included to supplement the career details of the players. Derby’s all time top twenty goalscorers appear, along with appearance statistics, and managers of the club have their own section.

About the Author

GERALD MORTIMER has followed the fortunes of Derby County since 1946. He recently retired as chief sports correspondent of the Derby Evening Telegraph, having covered the club for that newspaper since the early Clough era. He is the author of Breedon’s Derby County: A Complete Record, and in 2003 his book Are The Fixtures Out?, about his life as a sports correspondent, was also published by Breedon Books.
