Derby County Take Points Deduction After Appointing Administrators

The EFL have confirmed that, in accordance with EFL Regulations, a 12-point deduction has been immediately applied to Derby County Football Club’s 2021/22 season total. 

 

 

This follows the lodging of the Notices of Intention to Appoint Administrators on Friday evening, and the subsequent announcement that the process of appointment was completed earlier today.

 

The EFL will contact representatives of Rams Trust (the Derby County Official Supporters Trust), DCMS, MPs from the Derby area and other relevant stakeholders inviting them to meet the League to discuss the club’s position now that Administrators have been appointed. 

 

EFL Chief Executive Trevor Birch, said: “I appreciate that this is a challenging and concerning period for everyone associated with the Club, particularly the staff and supporters, and it is our intention to work proactively with the Administrators and all relevant parties with the objective of securing a long-term and viable future for Derby County. We will endeavour to provide timely and relevant updates as appropriate and as and when events unfold over the coming weeks.” 

 

Business advisory firm Quantuma, have been appointed as joint administrators of the Sky Bet EFL Championship club, currently managed by former England captain Wayne Rooney, that was one of 12 founder members of the Football League in 1888, and last played in the top flight in 2008.

 

Andrew Hosking, Quantuma managing director and joint administrator, said: “I can confirm that Andrew Andronikou, Carl Jackson and I were appointed joint administrators of Derby County FC today.

 

“Covid-19 has had a significant impact on the finances of the club and its long-term ability to continue in its current form.

 

“We recognise that with the commencement of the 2021/22 season last month, this news will be of concern to stakeholders and fans, in addition to the city of Derby and the wider football community.

 

“We are in the early stages of assessing the options available to the club and would invite any interested parties to come forward.

 

“Our immediate objectives are to ensure the club completes all its fixtures in the Championship this season and finding interested parties to safeguard the club and its employees.”
