Over £6,000 to be Handed Over for Ernie Moss

30 June 2016

Over £6,000 will be handed over to Team Ernie following the recent Ernie Moss Charity Match at the Proact.

Further funds were raised through an auction and other activities on the day and the money will be split between dementia charities and Once Upon a Smile's charity fund.

Team Ernie organised a game between Spireites legends and the Once Upon a Smile team featuring soap stars and other celebrities. 

A club spokesman said: "The Moss family and the rest of Team Ernie should be congratulated on their efforts.

"We will continue to support the Moss family and Team Ernie in whatever way possible as they raise awareness of dementia and raise funds for their designated charities.

"We will hold a second 'Ernie Moss Day' when we play Ernie's old club Port Vale next April. 

"The first Ernie Moss Day was a memorable occasion and we want to provide fans with another opportunity to pay tribute to one of the most popular players in the history of the club."

Ernie, who suffers from a rare form of dementia called Pick's Disease, is Chesterfield's record goalscorer with 191 goals.
