Where is Rory Delap now?

Having spent nearly 20 years as a professional footballer, Rory Delap retired from playing in 2013 after a brief spell with Burton Albion.

Renowned for his work rate, fitness and famed for his long throws, Delap was a popular figure at all of his former clubs especially at Stoke City where he was instrumental in getting them promoted to the Premier League for the first time in 2008.

Upon retiring from playing Rory Delap returned to former club Derby County to work at the club’s academy as their under 18’s coach.

Delap was promoted to head coach of the under 21’s side in February 2016 when the club had a management reshuffle after the departure of manager Paul Clement, and the subsequent appointment of academy director Darren Wassall as the first team manager.

In an extremely successful three months, Delap’s U21 side won the Division Two title.

Delap is now working as Derby County’s Professional Development Phase Coach.
