The Rams clinched their place in the top flight with victory over West Bromwich Albion at Wembley Stadium on Monday 28th May 2007.

Thousands of people lined the streets in Derby city centre to show their appreciation.
The parade through Derby was supossed to last around half an hour but due to the sheer number of fans it took an hour and a half.
The route for the Two open-topped double-deckers started at the Cock-Pit island and went onto The Morledge,Albert Street, Victoria Street, Wardwick, Cheapside, Bold Lane, Cathedral Road, Full Street, Corporation Street, back to the Cockpit and along Pride Park Way to the stadium.

At about 8.30pm, an hour and a half later, the buses approached the ground and were greeted by a black and white sea formed by thousands more supporters.

The players arrived outside the main reception in the Toyota West Stand,
each greeted by a massive cheer.
Once inside the stadium they were introduced from the second tier of the stand to an estimated 7,000 fans packed on to the pitch.
The Championship play-off trophy was held aloft and club captain Michael Johnson
thanked the supporters.

The footage you can see here I took during the parade around the streets of Derby.
Hope you enjoy it.
If you spot yourself in the crowd then leave a comment with time.
