McFarland’s Delight As Derby County Win The Charity Shield For The Only Time In Their History
Pictured here is former Derby County skipper and club legend Roy McFarland getting his hands on the FA Charity Shield at Wembley Stadium following the Rams’ 2-0 victory over West Ham United in August 1975.
As the reigning First Division champions, Derby faced the FA Cup winners ahead of the 1975/76 campaign.
Over 59,000 fans were in attendance at Wembley on the day as two first-half goals handed Dave Mackay’s side the victory.
Kevin Hector struck first in the 20th minute with a low right-footed effort from the right of the box – and McFarland then put the Rams firmly in control just before half-time from a set piece. A corner was headed back into the six-yard box by Francis Lee and the Rams’ skipper was there to find the back of the net from two yards out.
Derby were able to see the game out in the second half before making their way into the Royal Box to get their hands on the silverware afterwards.
