New Video : Derby County when we were fans not customers.

I'm always keen to promote local video makers and here is a new video that will be of interest to Rams Fans. the Video is "Derby County when we were fans, not customers" by Johnny Vincent aka Youtube user davemahenus

It features photographs and some video of the old Baseball Ground put to a rather appropriate song going by the current problems at Derby County. If you like his video remember to give it the thumbs up.

If you would like to see more photographs of the old Derby Baseball Ground then have a look at my collection Old photographs of Derby BBG.

The site of the Baseball ground was cleared away way back in 2003. In the last two or three years some houses have been build on the land and in September last year a statue commemorating Derby County's former Baseball Ground was unveiled. The 15-foot high metalwork, featuring three footballers dribbling, shooting and tackling, was officially revealed at the Normanton site by ex-Ram Roger Davies.
Commissioned by developers Spirita and Strata, which are building a 149-house estate on the former ground, the work in Cambridge Street was designed by artist Denis O'Connor.
If you have not been to the old site for some time then have a look at this, you will need to go down Cambridge Street, you can't miss it !
