After the disappointing and unexpected defeat by our local rivals from down the A52 Brian Clough Way on Saturday, a 'supporter' ran on the pitch and appeared to attack a Forest player. There was also video footage of so-called Derby fans damaging the car belonging to Forest's Chairman.

RamsTrust was asked to comment on this behaviour by the Derby Telegraph. Chair Jim Wheeler said there was “no excuse” for a fan to invade the pitch after Derby's defeat.

Jim also said that he hopes the incident will be “the last we see of this type of behaviour” and he joined other Rams fans in condemning the behaviour of the pitch invader.

He said: “The football violence of the past has largely, and thankfully, gone from the game and what the pitch invader did is completely indefensible.

“While I think we all appreciated that it was a local derby against Forest with emotions running high – especially with them winning the game in injury time – there is still absolutely no excuse for this type of behaviour.

“What I thought was interesting was how so many Derby fans were sharing the man’s picture on social media in a bid to help the police.

“Hopefully, Saturday will be the last we see of this type of behaviour at all and I would assume if he is charged and prosecuted he will be banned from attending matches for a very long time.”

RamsTrust also condemns attacks on cars and any sort of disorder which brings shame on our great club.

A Little Patience

I believe that it was those great philosophers, Guns N' Roses, who told us that 'All it really needs is a little patience'. As Nigel Clough completes his first year as manager of Derby County, we should heed greatly those words.

Football, Commercialisation and Cross Words
The RamsTrust Column

The global financial crisis is giving us plenty of pain to work through – and the world of football will have to face up to the new realities that are now confronting everyone.

Top level football has grown rich on its TV money in recent years, but not everything is as rosy as it once was when we all actually attended games to see them in their entirety. Back then, Match of the Day and other programmes featured only edited highlights; only major European games and internationals were screened from start to finish. But in this multi-channel, subscription sport era, are we now beginning to realise that watching football on TV is difficult?

The RamsTrust board is deeply sorry to report the unexpected, untimely and sudden death of our webmaster, Steve Tickle in November at the age of 59.

Steve attended the inaugural public meeting of those interested in forming a trust in October 2002 and when it was resolved to form a supporters trust he immediately offered his services as webmaster and keeper of mailing lists.

Prior to 2002 Steve had been a weekly writer for well respected Derby County fan site RamZone with his 'Tickle Tackle' column offering his often quirky views on DCFC. He continued his writing for a few years after the formation of the trust but later devoted more time to his webmaster duties.

Chris WilliamsonChris Williamson, a member of RamsTrust and a lifelong Derby supporter has been the Labour MP for Derby North since 2010. He was formerly Leader of Derby City Council and was responsible for Brian Clough being given the Freedom of the City.

Prior to entering politics, Chris was a bricklayer and a social worker among other jobs.

Recently, Shadow Minister for Sport Clive Efford announced that a future Labour Government would encourage supporter participation in football club boardrooms with representation from the trust associated with the club. Chris Williamson was delighted to be a part of this commitment and offered to write an article for RamsTrust on the subject.
