Call to rename road after Clough
The A52 links Derby and Nottingham
Officials in Derby and Nottinghamshire say they are considering renaming part of the A52, in honour of Brian Clough.

The legendary former Derby County and Nottingham Forest manager died from stomach cancer on Monday - he was 69.

Both city councils say there are no firm plans in the pipeline at the moment, but if it is what people want, then the matter will be looked into.

The road between the Bardills Island in Notts to the Pentagon Island in Derby does not have a name at present.

Trophy parade

The idea has been put forward several times by callers to local radio programmes.

Milan Radulovic, the leader of Broxtowe Borough Council, said calling the stretch, 'Brian Clough Way', would be a fitting memorial to a local hero.

"It will be seen as a lasting tribute and testament to a man who did so much for football and brought so much recognition to both Derby and Nottingham through his successful teams, through his philosophy and of course through his great personality."

Nottingham Forest have announced plans to parade all the trophies won by Brian Clough before Sunday's game with West Ham.
