We are pleased to announce that the final interviews for the independent candidates for the proposed Derby County Supporters' Board will take place shortly.

The club would like to thank all those who applied for the positions with both the number - over 80 - and calibre of candidates exceptional.

Those who have made the shortlist will go before a three-person panel made up of a club representative, a representative from the Football Supporters' Association and a third person who is entirely independent of the process so far.

The club hope to make an announcement on the successful candidates who will take their place on the Supporters' Board well before the start of the new season. They will join representatives from Rams Trust and Punjabi Rams from the existing Supporters' Charter Group.
