Change to Testimonial Match Format

14 July 2016

A change to the format of Shane Nicholson's forthcoming testimonial match will see the Chesterfield and Derby County first teams involved in the whole match.

The original plan was for the two sides to face each other in the first half with 'legends' teams taking over after the break, but the idea of including former players has now been scrapped. The second 45 minutes will, however, feature an appearance from Shane himself.

The match takes place at the Proact on Tuesday, July 26 (7.30pm) and Shane is relishing the prospect of turning out. He said: "I'll be joining Chesterfield's team for 25-30 minutes in the second half - if I can last! 

"It's a date I'm looking forward to for me and my family. It will be strange because I've never played at the Proact, but it will be great to be able to say a final goodbye to both sets of fans."

Shane, who had two spells as a player with Chesterfield, left his role as fitness coach at the Proact last summer.
