YDL Upper League

A massive well done to Derby AC for securing promotion to the Premier League. This is a fantastic achievement for the club. We would like to take this moment to pass on our thanks to the Athletes, Team Managers, Coaches, Officials, Volunteers and Civil Aid, not forgetting the parents who took the athletes to the events.

These are some of the comments from our Facebook page.

Fantastic effort all. No idea on field, sorry, but how brilliant to see so many Derby vests on the track :). Three runners out of four in the women’s steeplechase; four out of maybe seven in the women’s 1500; all the relays covered – I could go on! Marvellous news 😀

Paul M
Thanks for your support today

This is simply a brilliant result for the Club, the u20 & u17 athletes who have turned out for the Club over the summer, the fantastic Team Management, the parents & supporters and Officials. This just shows what Derby AC can do when it tries hard enough and has the backroom support. If we are confirmed in the Premier League for 2018 the competition will be of a higher standard throughout and the Club will need all its members (athletes, coaches & officials) pulling in the same direction. Congratulations to all who have helped produce this result. There is no time to rest on our (collective) laurels but the pace has to be pi8cked up.
