LOCAL hero and lifelong Rams fan David Clowes finally completed his takeover of Derby County to end nine months of administration misery.

Then he delivered an open letter to relieved Rams fans admitting he couldn't stand by and watch the club he loves die.

The 53-year-old property tycoon now owns the League One club and Pride Park as well as providing the life-saving loan which means interim boss Liam Rosenior can start recruiting players under strict EFL regulations, as the club's transfer ban was partially lifted.

Clowes confessed he would rather have avoided the limelight but felt he had to act when American Chris Kirchener's proposed takeover collapsed.

"As a lifelong supporter, I could not stand by as the risk of losing Derby County became all too real," he wrote after ending Derby's agony after 282 days in administration.

"I could not have looked myself in the mirror if I had not done everything possible to protect it.

"As a private person, I did not want the publicity and would prefer to remain an anonymous supporter watching the team from my usual seat.

"However, if that is the price to secure the future of the club, then so be it.

"My focus now is to stabilise the football club in every department and to make sure we have the foundations in place for success, however long that takes."

One of Clowes' first tasks could be to appoint a permanent manager following the departure of Wayne Rooney last week.

Rooney described his decision to step down as boss as "one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make in my career".

Rosenior is one of the bookies' favourites to land the gig on a full-time basis with ex-Burnley boss Sean Dyche also linked with the vacant role.

TopGolf with Jets rookie Garrett Wilson requires protective equipment (Video)

New York Jets first-round pick Garrett Wilson should be a huge asset on the field but he won’t be joining teammates’ four-man scramble anytime soon.

Armed with two first-round picks in the 2022 NFL Draft, the New York Jets executed their plan to perfection as they try to put second-year quarterback Zach Wilson in the best position to succeed. First, they gave him some defensive help by selecting Sauce Gardner. Then they took Ohio State star wide receiver Garrett Wilson with their next selection, who will obviously directly help Wilson.

While he may be a favorite target in the Jets offense when they’re on the field, though, Wilson probably won’t be invited to be on Wilson’s Saturday scramble team at the local country club anytime soon.

A video of Wilson at TopGolf surfaced on Saturday and it is a sight to behold.

Not only does it look like the man is completely lost with a golf club in his hand just from the stance alone, it gets even worse whenever he takes a swing. To quote Happy Gilmore, “Whoa! The club went farther than the ball!”

Jets WR Garrett Wilson might need a little more practice with his golf game. ????

Jets: Garrett Wilson makes TopGolf an extreme sport with inexplicable swing, club throw

Let this be a lesson to everyone: If you see Garrett Wilson at TopGolf, you probably need a helmet there more than you would on the football field.

In all seriousness, Wilson wasn’t taken in the first round for his ability to get birdies or bomb it down the fairway. So this is all in good fun as there’s plenty of reasons to believe that he’s far more capable of doing the job the Jets are paying him to, namely form a rapport with Wilson and be a catalyst for the New York offense.

Even still, it’s hard to think that this video isn’t reaching the Jets locker room sooner rather than later and Wilson will most definitely catch some heckling from his new teammates.
