The all-new EFL is launched this week ahead of the start of the new season this weekend, and Zoe Edge will be representing the Spireites at a prestigious launch event in London.

As part of the launch each of the 72 EFL clubs were asked to put forwards someone who represents a certain value that the EFL aim to promote, with Chesterfield tasked with finding someone who embodies the club's community spirit.

Zoe Edge, the inaugural Fan of the Year, was decided as being the perfect person to embody what the Spireites are all about in the community, with the launch also being seen as the perfect way to promote Zoe's latest charity venture: "Edgey Does it Her Way"

As part of the launch, Zoe, accompanied by her parents Mick and Dylis, has been invited to Fulham's Craven Cottage ground this week for a special event, one which will see all 72 EFL representatives photographed in a squad photo as well as taking part in a video shoot where Zoe will be able to show the EFL what makes her and the Spireites so special.

Another aspect of the launch will see Zoe head out onto the Proact pitch with the match ball for her beloved Spireites' first home game of the season against Swindon Town on Saturday, August 13.

Zoe's latest project sees the Paralympic silver medal winner producing a calender to raise funds for the Fountaindale School in Mansfield, which offers education to young people with complex physical and sensory needs.

On October 21, Zoe is hosting a dinner at the Proact Stadium with live entertainment as well as special guests being invited along for what promises to be a great night of fund-raising fun.

Tickets for the 'Oh What a Night!' dinner are available now, cost £35 each and can be booked by emailing or by heading to Zoe's Facebook page or Just Giving site, where more information on the project is also on show.

After being approached about showcasing the Spireites at the EFL launch, Zoe said: "I feel really proud to be representing Chesterfield. I have always dreamed of playing for the Spireites and that hasn't happened yet, so this is the second best thing.

"When I meet the other representatives there I will go straight to the Portsmouth fan. I'll tell them that they have one good player in Drew Talbot but I think I can laugh too because we stole their goalkeeper Ryan Fulton!"

Good luck in London Zoe!
