Spireites prepare to face Owls in Drew Talbot’s testimonial

The Spireites continue their build-up to the new season with a game at home to Sheffield Wednesday this evening for Drew Talbot’s testimonial. The match kicks off at 7pm.

Following games against local non-league opposition in Matlock Town and Alfreton Town, scoring 14 goals in the process, the visit of Wednesday will provide Chesterfield with a good test.

Promoted to the Championship via the play-offs after beating Barnsley in the final, the Owls recently appointed former Watford boss Xisco Munoz as their new manager following Darren Moore’s departure.

There will be a big crowd at the SMH Group Stadium to pay tribute to Talbot, who played for both clubs, so fans are urged to arrive in plenty of time to avoid unnecessary queues.

Tickets are available to purchase online until an hour before kick-off via the following link: https://tickets.chesterfield-fc.co.uk/en-gb/categories/match

Home supporters will be able to purchase tickets from the ticket office windows on the night.
