Derby County’s popular ‘A Night with the Rams’ Pub Tour visits will be making a comeback this Autumn – with Steve McClaren and his coaching staff due to appear as special guests!
A number of events took place back in March and April, where supporters were invited to take part in live Question & Answer sessions across the county with President & Chief Executive Sam Rush and Chief Operating Officer John Vicars.
New Head Coach Steve McClaren, First Team Coach Paul Simpson & Goalkeeping Coach Eric Steele will also be turning out at a number of the venues to offer presence from the football staff at the club, while ex-Rams Roger Davies & Archie Gemmill, plus Honorary Vice Chairman Don Amott, have also committed to appearing at selected pubs.
The tours will head across Derbyshire during October and November, stopping off at the Rams' Official Beer Partner, Marston’s Pedigree pubs, to give fans the opportunity to ask questions and air their views about the Club over a pint.
Building on the back of the successful events earlier this year, which were very well attended, the club is keen to ensure regular dialogue is maintained with the Club’s supporters.
Rush said: “I’m delighted that the Pub Tour visits will be taking place once again and we’re grateful for the support of Marston’s in helping to arrange the dates at a number of venues across the county.
“It’s great that Steve, Paul and Eric will be appearing too and answering questions from supporters on football matters.
“We’re keen to reach out and meet as many supporters as possible and if the previous pub visits are anything to go by; they’ll be extremely useful for both our supporters and the club.
“We had a great time earlier in the year meeting various fans and talking about a number of different topics and we’re already looking forward to the upcoming visits over the next few weeks.”
