Derby County captain out for season after crash

Richard Keogh

Richard Keogh, Derby County captain, has been ruled out until the end of the season due to a knee injury sustained on the night of a crash that led to the arrest of two of his team-mates.

Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett have been charged with drink-driving following the accident in the city's Allestree area on Tuesday night.

Police said that the crash involved a Range Rover Sport and a Mercedes GLC, .

Derby County said the crash followed a team-building dinner.

"A small group, including the team captain Richard Keogh, continued drinking into the night," the report said.

"They should have known when to stop and also ignored the opportunity to be driven home using cars laid on by the club, and chose to stay out."

Derbyshire Police said neither man was seriously injured, although 25-year-old Wales international Mr Lawrence was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Richard Keogh, 33, signed for Derby in July 2012 and has made 316 league appearances for the club, as well as 26 senior appearances for the Republic of Ireland.
