Private Derby promoted to Lance Corporal

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-34125832



What a legend! Article doesn't mention his vital role of leading the players out at Pride Park on match days, which I think he does every game now??

Of course, if we lose, I'll never admit it was me who wrote this.

Haha, the that's what you call a proper mascot.

Read that all other private Derby's that got promoted to Lance Corporal ended up being demoted again for "bad behaviour". How exactly does a Ram show bad behaviour, shitting on the parade ground?

Once stood in the rain to watch Private Derby switch on the Christmas lights. Only get the big celebs in Ashbourne.
