Chesterfield have announced a partnership with East Midlands Trains, an agreement that the fans will also be able to take advantage of.

Representatives from the club, as well as players Ian Evatt and Ollie Banks, joined Chester the Fieldmouse at Chesterfield station to announce the deal.

Jane Moyses from East Midlands Trains talked through the agreement.

She said: "As a train company we're keen to work with all our partners along our routes and we have various arrangements with most of the football teams along our route, so it's great that we can now also make Chesterfield one of our family."

Moyses also explained how supporters can make the most of the deal, both with buying cheaper rail tickets and raising funds for the club.

She said: "We'll be helping Chesterfield out with tickets and we can do discounted tickets for fans travelling to London for matches that the club can sell.

"Also fans have got access to our website, which will earn commission for the club and bring in extra revenue."

John Croot from the Chesterfield Community Trust was also present and revealed some more details of the partnership, as well as some of the benefits it will bring to the local community.

He said: "We've got some big plans in terms of advertisements around the stadium and there are also benefits for supporters to come out of it, which is always forefront in our minds.

"We're going to sit down in the next couple of weeks and work on some community projects. East Midlands Trains are very much community-focused and we're working on some projects together, around schools and other community groups."

Chesterfield's sales & marketing manager Kevin Fitzgerald added: "We are excited to have a new partnership with a nationally recognised brand that also gives something back to our fans. The agreement further enhances what we are trying to achieve in driving the club forward and it is just the ticket for everyone involved.”
