MANAGER: PAUL WARNE

Paul Warne has been tasked with reviving the fortunes of Derby County since he was appointed as the permanent successor to Wayne Rooney, following Liam Rosenior’s spell in interim charge, in September 2022.

He had previously made his name as manager of Rotherham United, who he also had two spells as a player with (1999-2005 & 2009-2012). Warne was appointed as manager of the Millers in 2016, following a successful spell as caretaker manager.

His time at the New York Stadium proved to be a great success as he led Rotherham to three promotions from League One: once as play-off winners in 2017-18 and twice as runners-up in 2019-20 and 2021-22. His third promotion with the Millers also coincided with lifting the EFL Trophy in 2022.

PLAYER TO WATCH: CONOR HOURIHANE

Republic of Ireland international midfielder Conor Hourihane is no stranger to the South West having played for Plymouth Argyle between 2011 and 2014 – following brief spells with Sunderland and Ipswich Town.

Hourihane then joined Barnsley in 2014 and helped the Tykes win the EFL Trophy in the 2015-16 season against Oxford United, which was swiftly followed by a League One play-off final win against Millwall.

In January 2017, Hourihane earned a move to Aston Villa and helped them win promotion back to the Premier League in the 2018-19 campaign. He joined the Rams in the summer of 2022 after he was released by the Villains at the end of the 2021-22 season.

He has represented the Republic of Ireland 36 times and has scored once.
