5 August 2015

The FA Cup trophy returned to Chesterfield for the first time since 1997 last week as part of the FA Cup Festival organised by the Community Trust.

Over 500 supporters made their way to see the famed silverware on a day packed with events in and around the stadium.

The event came about as a result of the Derbyshire County FA winning a competition to host the trophy for an event in the evening, with the club given the opportunity to stage an event during the day. 

The Trust’s activities and education officer Michael Noon was delighted with how the day went. He said: "It was a successful event, with people coming in and out of The HUB all day.

"People could have their photo taken with the FA Cup free of charge and then they could come outside and join in with activities. We had a barbeque and a football pitch was set up in the car park for the kids. 

"The police brought some vehicles down and we had a speed cage which measures how fast you can kick a ball."
