Local derby

Local derby

In many countries the term local derby, or simply just derby (pronounced UK: /ˈdɑrbi/ dar-bee or US: /ˈdɜrbi/ dur-bee; see American and British English differences) means a sporting fixture between two, generally local, rivals, particularly in association football. In North America, "crosstown rivalry" is a more common term.



The phrase most likely originated from The Derby, a horse race in England, founded by the 12th Earl of Derby in 1780, since at least as early as 1840 'derby' has been used as a noun in English to denote any kind of sporting contest. A local derby is just a sporting contest between local rivals. It may be that the Earl, and his ancestors, are responsible for lending their family name to sporting events, giving rise to the 'derby' match.

Another widely reported theory, though not accepted by the Oxford English Dictionary, is that the phrase came about from the city of Derby itself. The traditional Shrovetide football match was also commonplace in the city. It was renowned as a chaotic and exuberant game that involved the whole town and often resulted in fatalities. The goals were at Nuns Mill in the north and the Gallows Balk in the south of the town, and much of the action took place in the Derwent river or Markeaton brook. Nominally the players came from All Saints' and St Peter's parishes, but in practice the game was a free-for-all with as many as 1,000 players. A Frenchman who observed the match in 1829 wrote in horror, 'if Englishmen call this play, it would be impossible to say what they call fighting'. Though this has been refuted by the Oxford dictionary and hailed as "nothing apart from local folklore ... after all, the phrase isn't 'a local Ashbourne'."[1]

Yet another theory is that the 'derby match' saying arose from when Liverpool played Everton. Their two grounds were separated by Stanley Park, owned by the Earl of Derby. This latter suggestion can be discounted, however. The Widnes Weekly News of 9 March 1889 describes a game between the (rugby) football team of that town and the touring Māori as 'the local Derby'. This usage was three years before Liverpool FC came into existence.

Another theory is that the term applies not to the match itself but to the size of the crowd. In the early years of the twentieth century, the largest sporting crowd in England was at the annual Derby horserace meeting where more than half a million people would pack Epsom Downs to watch the race. At that time football matches were attended entirely by 'home' supporters – the concept of the 'away supporter' lay many years into the future as the largely working-class crowds could not afford to follow their teams around the country. Supporters watched the first team and reserves who were 'at home' on alternate Saturdays. The only exception came when two teams from the same town played one another. Then the 'home' supporters of both teams would turn up, producing the largest gate of the season. The term 'local derby' was coined by the press as an analogy to the Derby race crowd. In time the expression came to refer to the match rather than the size of the crowd.


'Derby' is commonly used to signify matches between teams in the same town or region. Though the term is rarely applied to international matches, matches between any two of the four British national teams (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) are sometimes referred to as a "British derby", the most recent of which took place during the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifying stage when England, Wales and Northern Ireland were all drawn in the same group.

The city of Derby, United Kingdom itself does not have a football rivalry within the city as there is only one major club Derby County F.C.. At one point there was a rivalry within the city between Derby County and Derby Midland; however, the two clubs merged. Derby County's main football rival is generally seen as Nottingham Forest.

Derbies usually have a much more heated atmosphere between the fans and often the players of the two clubs. For some derbies, an added source of tension between the two clubs can be political or sectarian rivalry.

An example of sectarian rivalry is in the Old Firm derby between the two leading clubs of Glasgow in Scotland. The Old Firm derby is arguably the biggest derby match in sport, due to the profile of the clubs and their historic rivalry. It should be noted that the Old Firm derby normally takes place four times per season in the Scottish Premier League, thereby making it a more common fixture than other major derbies. In the matches between Celtic and Rangers, the two clubs are widely perceived as respectively representing the Catholic and Protestant populations of Glasgow.

Floriana is a suburb of Malta's capital city of Valletta and generally Floriana fans are taunted about being the "carpet" to the capital city (Valletta). However, the Floriana supporters ('ta' l-Irish') always taunt Valletta about the fact that a few years back, Valletta was full of British and Allied Militars frequenting the city. Both clubs hold a lion as their mascot since there is a statue of a lion looking at Valletta in Floriana.[5]

This is the newest Premiership derby on the Maltese Islands. Hibernians FC are by far the most successful but Tarxien are building a strong squad for the future. The 1st derby was played in the 1986–87 and resulted in a 1-0 victory for Hibernians, though the next meeting Tarxien caused an upset by winning 1-0. In the nineties they met 4 times, all resulting in a Hibernians victory. During the 2000s Hibernians won 2-0 and 7-2 in 2008–09 and 2-1 in 2009–10 and Tarxien won 1-0, 2-0 and once again 1-0 in their memorable 2009–10 season, their 1st which they finished above their rivals.

Despite that geographically Gozo is much smaller than Malta, Gozo is home to the only village (city) derby that takes place on the Maltese Islands. While in Malta there are no villages home to two or more clubs, Victoria, the capital city of Gozo, is home to three clubs, being, Victoria Hotspurs, SK Victoria Wanderers and Oratory Youths. While the latter are considered to be the smallest of the three, matches between the former two are always a heated affair and undoubtedly is the most fiery derby in the Gozitan football league, with the second heated rivalry being the one between Ghajnsielem FC and Nadur Youngsters FC.
