Plenty of football fans have taken to social media to react to the reported news that Derby County will not be throwing a players’ Christmas party this year.
The Athletic reported earlier today that the Derby squad and playing staff all agreed to cancel the Christmas party.
The decision comes after Ex-Derby captain Richard Keogh suffered a serious injury in a car accident following a team-bonding night out in September.
Keogh sustained a season-ending knee injury in the crash – which saw his Derby teammates Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett charged with drink-driving.
According to The Athletic, the club have decided that it would be sensible to cancel the players’ Christmas party this year. Instead, the players will attend a Christmas lunch, which is normally reserved for club staff only.
