Senior Spireites FC Come in Third

2 December 2014

The Senior Spireites FC walking footballers took part in the national finals in Derby on Sunday, achieving a very respectable third place finish.

With teams coming from Yorkshire, the South East and the South West the Senior Spireites had their work cut out taking on some other strong teams.

The team from Barnsley were the eventual trophy winners, while the Senior Spireites felt disappointed as they did not play as well as they had in some of the earlier rounds.

However, great credit is due to the Spireites, who despite only having been together and competing for just over a year and coming third in the whole country is not bad going.

Earlier this season, the Senior Spireites won the Wharburton's Trophy as a competition held in Blackpool in August, defeating several northern teams in the process.
