Welcome to Derby Athletic Club’s website

Members please note that the Clubroom is being painted over the next couple of weeks starting in the main room on Monday 15th May at 8.00am. Therefore, it is unlikely that the room will be available on Tuesday 16th May. We will try to see if we can use the FA Rooms upstairs in the meantime. These next 2 weeks are relatively quiet before the next Moorways fixture on 27th May (Derbys Mini League).


Reminder to all, there will be no Training at Moorways on Sunday 14th May 2017, this is due to track being closed for the Combined Derby & Notts County Championship.
