Response to Report on Ernie Moss Charity Match

Following a local newspaper report relating to the recent Ernie Moss charity match held at the Proact Stadium, the club would like to set the record straight.

A club spokesman said: “Ernie’s daughter, Nikki, was informed by our ticket office manager that the financial details would be resolved once the relevant member of staff returned to the club, which she accepted. We have set up a meeting at Nikki’s earliest convenience to sort everything out and reach a satisfactory conclusion.

“When Nikki approached our chief executive, Chris Turner, to ask whether the match could be staged at the Proact, he readily agreed to provide the facilities for the day free of charge. In order to comply with health & safety regulations, a set number of stewards were required to be in attendance, as outlined to the organisers from the outset.

"The club has an excellent relationship with the Moss family and long may that continue. Ernie is quite rightly regarded as a true Spireites legend following his tremendous service to the club over many years and he and his family are always made welcome at the Proact. 

"We held an Ernie Moss Day to pay tribute to Ernie, as well as raise awareness of Pick’s Disease and generate funds for Dementia UK. We have also raised money for dementia charities through raffles and collections held at the stadium in Ernie's name.

"We will continue to help and support the Moss family in any way we can to help raise awareness of the terrible disease Ernie is suffering from."
