Hooray!!! Derby County have a home tie against Shrewsbury Town in the first round of the Carling Cup.
The match will take place the week of August 8th, so this will be the first midweek match of the new season.
The Carling Cup hasn’t always been kind to us, though The Rams did have a great run in 2009, eventually going out to Manchester United – do you remember that? Won the home tie (1-0) and then narrowly lost the away – (4-2, quite narrow) Grrr! Let’s hope for another good cup run this season, though Wembley can be cold in February – 🙂
