Description:
Derby County Football Club is an English football based in Derby. the club played in the Championship Football League Championship, and is notable as being one of the twelve founder members of the Football League in 1888 and is, therefore, one of only ten clubs to have competed in every season of the English football league. they were managed by Nigel Clough, with Shaun Barker serving as club captain.

The club was founded in 1884, by William Morley, as an offshoot of Derbyshire County Cricket Club and has spent all but four seasons in the top two divisions of the English football league. The club's competitive peak came in the 1970s when it had two spells as English League Champions and competed in major European competition on four separate occasions, reaching the European Cup semi-finals, as well as winning several minor trophies. The club was also a strong force in the interwar years of the football league and won the 1945-46 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, at the same time. it played its home games at the Pride Park Stadium, located in Pride Park, Derby, where it moved in 1997.
