Five Reasons to #PacktheProact This Saturday

24 August 2016

This Saturday come along and help us #PacktheProact as the Spireites aim to keep their home winning ways going against Millwall (3pm kick-off).

If you're still wavering let's see if we can convince you with five top reasons to make sure you're part of the Spireites action on Saturday.

1. Come and Watch the Entertainers

Seven points from four games is already a respectable early-season return, and Danny Wilson felt it should have been three points more after a strong display but no points to bring home from Shrewsbury last Saturday.

Nevertheless, the Spireites are among the top scorers in League One and have the league's joint top-scorer to boot.

What's more, it seems unlikely that the Lions from Millwall will come just to stifle Ariyibi, O'Shea, Evans and company. They've already scored eight goials this season - and at the other end have conceded eight as well. It should be a cracking game.

2. See Morrison Make his Home Mark

Attacker Curtis Morrison completed his near decade-long journey to the Spireites first team at Shrewsbury last week, coming off the bench to become the latest Spireites league player.

Morrison is likely to in the squad picture again for the Millwall visit and if he makes an appearance the 18-year-old, who has been with the Spireites longer than club has been at the Proact, will make his home bow.

You never know, he may even be able to do a Connor Dimaio and mark the occasion with a goal.

3. Make Mine a Treble

Last season wasn't the best in terms of Proact form, with just six home wins spread across the campaign, but just ask Swindon Town or Walsall, the Spireites are a different hosting animal in 2016/17.

Two home games and two home wins have given Chesterfield a springboard for the season, and have seen the Spireites win back-to-back at the Proact for the first time since the season before last.

Come Saturday and the masses at the Proact will be looking to make it a season-starting treble!

4. Watch Local Buy Local

Head to the Proact not just to watch your local team, but to buy top-quality local produce in the concourses.

We serve pies from Chesterfield-based Jacksons the Baker, so whether your taste buds crave steak and ale, chicken balti - and there's a Mexican bean slice for the vegetarians - you'll be munching one of the best pies in the EFL.  

You may need something to wash that down - and we're proud to serve beer from award-winning Chesterfield company Brampton Brewery at the Proact. If you've not tried a brew from them before, it's certainly recommended. Drink responsibly though, of course!

5. The Proact Needs its 12th Man

Perhaps more than anything, we need your support! 

The manager agrees and here's what he has to say as the Spireites look to #PacktheProact and build a fortress in 2016/17:

When the fans are apprehensive and they're quiet, that doesn't help us. It's a catch-22 situation when they're going to get behind you because you're playing very well or they're going to give you the confidence because you're not playing very well.

Either way, we're going to need that support. Understandably, last year it was a bit of a quiet Proact, as we were battling for our lives and it was a nervous time.

Last season is behind us now and we're looking to move on and move forwards.
