FOOTBALL players proved not to be sheepish when it came to mingling with people in Matlock.

Derby County defenders Jake Buxton and Gareth Roberts were at the Derbyshire Building Society on Causeway Lane to meet and greet fans.

The Rams players signed autographs, chatted and posed for pictures with fans for over an hour.

Branch manager Jim Kupranec said: “We have got a Rams account here that we’ve had for a number of years and we donate one per cent of the balance to the youth academy.

“We did get quite a lot of people come along, especially when the kids came out of school.

“It’s a great opportunity for local people to meet first-team players because there is a Derby County supporters branch in Matlock.

“It’s something we do every year.”
