Derek Wilson was born in Hamilton in 1982 and started following Motherwell at the age of four. Game after game was watched with his family, sadly with many more ending in defeat than victory, but that only served to make the rare moments of success taste all the sweeter. Derek was a season ticket holder for 14 years before fleeing to Berlin to escape the clutches of Fir Park after university. He works as a freelance journalist and has written for many publications including Bild and 11 Freunde while continuing to co-edit the website and contributing to the Motherwell fanzine, Waiting for the Great Leap Forward.
