Return of the Reserves

PLENTY IN RESERVE FOR 2007/08
Posted on: Thu 07 Jun 2007

Reserve team football makes a comeback to Derby County on Monday evenings in 2007/08 when opponents will include Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.

The Rams have listed Pride Park Stadium as their primary venue for Barclays Premiership Reserve League South home games, with Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium a second option.

Said the Rams' John Vicars: "In common with every other Premier League club, the Rams will be fielding a Reserve team next season and we are indebted to Ben Robinson at Burton Albion for allowing us to list the Brewers' stadium as a venue.

"We have nine home Reserve team games to fit in and there could be times when, due to first team requirements, we need to play away from Pride Park.

"The great thing during a season of exceptional demand on tickets for first team games is that Rams fans - particularly the younger ones - will get the opportunity to watch some top class action in the Reserve League."

Along with the Rams, the south section of the Barclays Premiership Reserve League will include current champions Reading, plus Chelsea, Arsenal, Aston Villa, West Ham, Fulham, Portsmouth and newly-promoted Birmingham City.

Stupid idea too scrap them in the first place, but that was the old board, cutting costs as they sent us spiraling deeper into the sh!t, good to see them back.

Well i think we all know that the reason to cut the reserve team in the first place, was basically a cost-cutting measure and nothing else really

I hope we can do a bit better than that, we used to have a good reserve side, we won the league one year and finisihed runners up the next.

Yeah good to see them back, when someone got injured like Bob Malcolm did, there's been no football for them to play to get back to fitness.
