Derby County: Champions 1974-75

Michael Cockayne

Following the success of his first book, Derby County: The Clough Years, Michael Cockayne revisits the Baseball Ground of the mid-seventies and the management era of Dave Mackay. With the use of extended match reports for every competitive match the club played, action photographs and interviews from the star players, this new history retraces the 1974-75 First Division season in remarkable detail.

Set against the backdrop of managerial changes, big name transfers and shock results, every twist and turn of the campaign is captured on a month by month basis. As fans celebrate the 30th anniversary of their team’s triumph, Michael Cockayne’s book is the perfect way to remember Derby’s momentous rise from mid-table mediocrity to eventual title glory. For football fans across the country it will rekindle memories of players past and of the glamour of the beautiful game in the 1970s.

About the Author

MICHAEL COCKAYNE was born in Belper in 1958 and first watched Derby County nine years later. As a teenager, although his own sporting achievements were primarily in athletics, he witnessed the majority of games played at the Baseball Ground between 1968 and 1976. Now a resident of South Manchester, his first book, Derby County: The Clough Years, was published in 2003.
