Over 80s Flocking to Proact in 2016/17

11 June 2016

With the 2016/17 campaign starting to appear on the horizon, the Proact will have a good share of long-time Spireites come August, with the free season ticket scheme for over 80s proving popular.

Over 150 season tickets have already been snapped up by over 80-year-olds since the scheme was launched by the club in March, with applications still open now.

One of the Spireites supporters cheering on her team will be Gladys Smith, who at 102-years-old is currently the oldest applicant - and surely among the oldest season ticket holders in the country. 

Stephen Kerry from the club's ticket office spoke about the scheme: "It's been great to have so many over 80s come to the stadium and apply for their season tickets, we've been surprised at just how successful it's been.

"It's important to reward fans who have been coming for so many years and it's been lovely to hear some of the stories from the older fans when they've applied.

"Season tickets applications are still open to over 80s now, all you need to do is come down to the ground with a form of ID and we'll sort everything out for you."
