Young Lions heading to Chesterfield

Chesterfield will welcome England men’s under-20s next month.

The Young Lions will take on Italy at the Spireites’ Technique Stadium on Thursday, October 7 (7pm kick-off).

Andy Edwards’ MU20s will be looking to build on a positive start to the season. Goals from Joe Gelhardt (2), Clinton Mola, James McAtee, Jensen Weir and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi saw the new crop comfortably beat Romania 6-1 at St. George’s Park on Monday (September 6).

England are no strangers to Chesterfield. The national team’s last visit came in October 2018 when the MU21s sealed qualification for the 2019 U21 EURO with a 7-0 victory over Andorra.

Tickets are on sale from Friday, September 10 and available via or
