REDS TO HOST FIVE RAMS U21S FIXTURES
Thursday Aug 7, 2014
Derby County have reached an agreement with local Vanarama Conference outfit Alfreton Town to stage a number of their Barclays U21 Premier League - Division 2 home fixtures at the Impact Arena during the 2014/15 season.
The Rams achieved Category One Academy status last month and, as a result, have stepped up from the Professional Development League 2 North to compete in a league amongst fellow Category One clubs.
Derby discovered their fixtures last week and will compete in division alongside the likes of Arsenal, Aston Villa and Newcastle United.
Five of Derby’s home fixtures will be played at Alfreton’s home ground following successful talks between the two clubs.
The Rams’ other six home matches will be split between being played at the iPro Stadium and the Derby County Training Centre in partnership with the University of Derby.
