    I just know that someone will know this from the forum.

    Is there a match we could theoretically have in which we would have no player Derbys?

    Premiership - Championship & League 1

    C+B - what a great question, and one I think will be a challenge for us. So I split it off to its own thread for fun.

    Lets start with League 1, currently. Alphabetical 1-10.

    Accrington Stanley, AFC Wimbledon, Blackpool, Bristol Rovers, Burton Albion, Charlton Athletic, Crewe Alexander, Doncaster Rovers, Fleetwood Town, Gillingham.

    11-20 to follow. :-)

    Edit - I'll cross off teams as people identify a derby, but don't let that stop you coming up with others.
  • This is an excellent challenge
  • Do they need to have played first team for us?
  • Well, I’m going to go for the easy one and say Charlton definitely isn’t one of them. Parker, Poyet and I’m sure some more obvious ones I’m missing.

    I think we should say yes.

    I'm sure we had a couple of others who played for the Gills. Where's Yeold???
  • our very own Steve Lomas played for them :)
  • and Matt Jarvis played for them before going to Wolves

    also for Gillingham we had Martin Allen who managed them as well as Glenn Roeder.

    Also just found him wasn't sure if it was Elliot or Olly but Olly Lee was loaned to the Gills by us and is also on loan with them again now from Hearts.
  • Yeold's specialist subject on Mastermind! :p
  • There are some youth players who have been loaned to Accrington, but I can’t think of any first teamers for them or for Fleetwood
  • Some of you guys are seriously up on our previous squads. I have no idea who Callum Mcnaughton even is?
  • There are gonna be a lot of Frank Nouble derbies
  • Some of you guys are seriously up on our previous squads. I have no idea who Callum Mcnaughton even is?

    He got sent off in the league cup against AFC Wimbledon after about 3 minutes or something and then they signed him right after
  • Accrington - The Aji Alese Derby (he’s had one senior appearance for us so it counts)

    I’ve been through every link on this page and I can’t find anyone. I think Fleetwood are the first non derby team.
