Derby had a scheduled team building meal on Tuesday and it looks like it resulted in two of their players (Lawrence and Bennett) crashing their cars into each other and both being arrested for drink driving, and their captain (Keogh) injuring himself in the crash and putting himself out for the season. That went well!

BBC article https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-49841762
Derby County captain Richard Keogh has been ruled out until the end of the season due to a knee injury sustained in a crash that led to two of his team-mates being arrested.

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 a Range Rover Sport and a Mercedes GLC had collided.

In a statement, 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 statement 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."

The club added that those involved "know they will pay a heavy price for their actions" but also said they would be supported with their "rehabilitation back into the squad and team".

The club said the players would be subject to an internal inquiry
Mr Bennett, 23, of Whaley Thorns near Mansfield, and Mr Lawrence, of Duffield, are due to appear at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates' Court on 15 October.

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

Derby Statement- https://www.dcfc.co.uk/news/2019/09/club-statement-6

As a club, we cannot, and do not, condone the actions of a small group of players on Tuesday evening.

The players were out as part of a scheduled team-building dinner with staff and while the majority of them acted responsibly and left at around 8pm and were not involved, a small group, including the team captain Richard Keogh, continued drinking into the night. 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.

As a result of an alcohol-related incident, Richard Keogh has sustained a serious knee injury that will prevent him from playing until the end of the season.

The players involved in the incident on Tuesday evening will be subject to a rigorous internal investigation under the club’s code of conduct and disciplinary procedures, but over and above any punishment they receive we will be expecting them to become involved with the excellent work the Community Trust does helping the communities we serve.

We have been very clear about our attitude towards alcohol and the players know that at certain and specific times of the season they are permitted a drink together as a group in a controlled environment.

Those involved in Tuesday’s incident know they will pay a heavy price for their actions, but also that we will support them with their rehabilitation back into the squad and team.

We fully support the work of our partners at Drinkaware and the unsanctioned actions of this small group of players is totally at odds the stance that both Drinkaware and Derby County Football Club take regards alcohol. We will be using this situation to redouble our efforts in highlighting the dangers posed by alcohol.

We would also like to thank the emergency services for their swift help.

Derby County captain Richard Keogh could be out for up to 15 months after sustaining knee ligament damage on the night of a crash that led to the arrest of two of his team-mates.

Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett were charged with drink-driving following the incident in Derby's Allestree area on Tuesday, 24 September.

Derby said that Keogh, 33, had been hurt in an "alcohol-related incident".

The defender was initially ruled out for the rest of the season.

However, the Republic of Ireland centre-back may now be out until December 2020.

Fooks sake. I love all the Americanised hypocritical drivel about alcohol misuse and how they will punish them, and support them, maybe they could birch them in the stocks at the same time as getting counselling about the dangers of alcohol by some bird with red hair addicted to Valium. All boxes ticked.
