King of caravans becomes honorary V.P of rams


Recommended Posts

DON Amott has taken on a new role as honorary vice president at Derby County. Amott had been a non-executive director following the takeover of the Rams by American company General Sports & Entertainment in January 2008.

Before then, he was a director and part of a group of local businessmen, led by Peter Gadsby, who rescued the club in April 2006.

"A couple of months ago, I had a chat with Adam Pearson and Tom Glick about my role," said Amott.

"Given the health of myself and my wife, I was not comfortable with the non-executive director role. I did not feel I was doing anything for the club.


"They came back to me and asked if I would accept the role as honorary vice-president, which I was delighted with and proud to do."

Amott is chairman of Derbyshire County Cricket Club.

Roger Faulkner, who is based in the United States, is still a non-executive director with the Rams.
