Seven goals ensure emphatic win
Our Football and Education side ran out emphatic 7-0 winners over West Bromwich Albion, with Player of the Match Oli scoring a hat-trick.
Derby started on the front foot and took the lead on seven minutes as a long range strike nestled into the bottom corner. They then had a goal ruled out for offside on 12 minutes before getting a second to take a two goal lead into the break.
West Brom went close at the start of the second half before Derby did the same up the other end. A penalty kick brought with it Derby's third of the game mid way through the half. A fourth soon followed before a good run was calmly finished for a fifth goal. As the game went into the final minutes Derby fired in two goals in quick succession to wrap up the win.
Elsewhere there were two more Football and Education games that ended in defeat away to Manchester City and West Brom. Despite the loses there were plenty for the players to take from the games and to build on for the future.
