The Anglo-Scottish Cup was loaned by Chesterfield to St Mirren recently when the Scottish club celebrated the 35th anniversary of winning the trophy.

As the last winners of the Anglo-Scottish Cup, the Spireites retained the trophy. 

A St Mirren spokesman said: “The night brought together eight members of the team for the first time in many, many years and the joy in meeting again after all this time was evident. Iain Munro flew in from Philadelphia for the weekend to join the celebrations.

“The night was also attended by some of the current first team squad and after introductions to the Anglo-Scottish Cup squad, the players were presented with commemorative scrolls and a plaque was awarded to the team which will stay at the club as there is nothing in the trophy cabinet. 

“The festivities then continued with a casino followed by an auction and raffle. The event was attended by over 150 people who together managed to raise over £5,000 for the St Mirren Fans Council initiatives.

“St Mirren Football Club and St Mirren Fans Council would like to thank Chesterfield FC for very kindly lending us the Anglo-Scottish Cup for the night. Both the players and the fans very much appreciated it."
