The Rams failed to repeat last seasons win in the Derbyshire Senior Cup final over Buxton

This time twelve months ago the Rams beat Buxton 5-0 to claim the Derbyshire senior Cup but failed in their attempt to make it back to back victories over the same club in this evenings final.

On a rain soaked b2net stadium, home of Chesterfield fc the Rams and Buxton locked horns. Derby County took a young and inexperienced side to Chesterfield, with only James Bailey, Mason Bennett and James Severn currently in the Rams 1st team squad.

The game was beautifully posed at 0-0 until the 71st minute when Buxton's Mark Reed squeased the ball past James Severn from a tight angle.
