Memorial Garden Fundraising Launch

26 January 2014

Sponsored by

Fundraising for the proposed new Chesterfield FC Memorial Garden will be launched at an open evening this Thursday night.

Plans for the Memorial Garden - due to be built opposite Chester's Den (behind the Spencers Solicitors Community Stand) - will be available to view at the meeting in the Leengate Legends Lounge, starting at 7pm.

Supporters will be able to look at the artists' impressions and learn more about the plans. The substantial memorial will be a place where fans can be remembered and there will also be a commemorative area to remember Spireites players and officials who were killed during the two World Wars.

Billy Gerrish and Sergeant Major Joe Smith were two of the players killed in the First World War, which started 100 years ago, as members of the famed Footballers' Battalion.

Entry to Thursday's meeting is free and the Supporters' Club would like to see as many people as possible attend the event.
