Derby County Players

After hanging out around the players entrance at the iPro stadium every week I actually managed to work up the nerve to get a few players autographs.

I really wanted to try and get all the 1st team and as much of the rest of them as possible but with only 2 more home games I doubt that is going to happen. Damn these anxiety issues that stop me doing the simplest things.

Anyhow Very happy with what I have so far...

Robert Englund

Robert Englund is most known to all as Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street Movies. The first Horror film I ever watched and I became hooked!

I don't know why it took me so long to write to Robert for his autograph. He's been such a hero of mine for so long.

I sent 2 copies of the photo and asked him to sign one to my sister. She isn't a big fan but it is a bit of a family joke so I was over the moon when he did return the other photo for my sis. I can't say she was happy LOL!!

I wrote to Robert in October and got the return on 10th January.

Henry Winkler

I don't think there is anyone in the world that isn't a fan of Henry Winkler! People of my age will remember him most fondly as The Fonz in Happy Days. He has done hundreds of films and other TV roles since then and has most recently featured as Dr Saperstein in Parks & Recreation and my daughter's favourite, Eddie R Lawson in Royal Pains.

I knew that Henry was a prolific signer through the Mail but I left it so long as usually I am the one that slips through the net.

I sent 2 photos to Henry back in November. He dated the photos when he signed on 28/12/14 and I received them back on 08/01/15 Great turn around time.

Arthur Darvill

Arthur Darvill is most known to everyone as Rory in the Matt Smith reign as Doctor Who.
Since Dr Who Arthur went on to star in Broadchurch as Rev Paul Coates.

Arthur is a tricky one to get as it took 3 years to receive this success. He must have been really busy or he is a great procrastinator like me lol.

Aidan Turner

Aidan Turner is best known to most from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies. To me he will always be Mitchell from Being Human.

I can't even remember when I wrote to Aiden as I don't seem to have recorded the sending date. I did send to his Irish address though and I attached stamps of Eire.

The Address that I used was this...

C/O Lisa Richards Agency

108 Upper Leeson Street

Dublin 4 


Jamie Ward

Jamie Ward is one of my favourite players for Derby County Football club (The Rams).
Ultimately I would like to be standing at the players entrance after the game on a Saturday afternoon to get the autographs of all the Rams players in Person. However my working hours don't allow me to do that, This is the reason I have been writing to each of the players to get their autographs thru the mail.

Here's a video of Jamie in action for the Rams

I wrote to Jamie at the beginning of October. It wasn't the best timing as Jmie was just about to go off on International duty with Northern Ireland. With that in mind the 20 day turn around was good as he was away for 2 weeks,

Leighton Meester

Leighton is most known for her role as Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl. I have attempted to write to her several times over the years to various different addresses including through the GG production address. I never got any success from those attempts. I had all but given up.

Leighton is currently performing on Broadway in Of Mice and Men as Curley's wife. I decided to try one more time and write to her care of the theatre (Via Venue)

I was ecstatic when postie called yesterday with finally a success from one of my favourite actresses!!

I The turnaround was just 2 months which is a great time really to the states and back.
