Derby County fans will be in despair at this news – Alison McGovern

Alison McGovern MP, Labour’s Shadow Culture and Sports Minister, commenting on the news that Derby County Football Club have gone into administration, said:

“Derby County fans will be in despair at this news. Football clubs are not just a business like any other. Supporters are right to want the identity and history of their clubs protected.

“Labour have campaigned on this for a decade, and legislation will not come a moment too soon.

“The Government need to bring forward their response to the Crouch Review, and in the meantime use any influence they have to help Derby County fans now.”
