Drew looking forward to testimonial match

Drew Talbot is looking forward to his testimonial match at the Technique Stadium next month.

The Spireites will take on Drew’s former club Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday, July 11 (7pm).

Commenting on the fixture, Drew said: “I’m extremely grateful for both Chesterfield and Sheffield Wednesday agreeing to play this testimonial match as part of their vital pre-season build-up.

“As a young professional, scoring a last gasp goal for the Owls in the play-off final at Cardiff is a real career highlight that Wednesday fans always remind me of and, after this season’s play-off experiences, it has been brought up many, many times again.

“In ten seasons with the Spireites, twice winning championships and also beating Swindon Town in the JPT at Wembley, as well as being involved in the last-ever game at Saltergate, I always had a great relationship with the supporters, always giving my best in every game.

“The match, between two clubs that have played such a major part in my life as well as my career, will be a real highlight for me and my family. I can’t wait for it and I’d love take the opportunity to thanks fans for their support on the night.”

Tickets for the match will cost £10 for adults and £5 for concessions. A hospitality package featuring a two-course meal will also be available.
