The Spireites are offering free season tickets to fans aged 80 or over next season, and 102-year-old Gladys Smith is signed-up at the Proact for 2016/17.

Gladys came to the Proact last Saturday with her daughter Pauline for the visit of Fleetwood Town and was personally handed her season ticket card by Chesterfield chairman Dave Allen.

Surely one of the oldest season ticket holders in the country, Gladys has celebrated her birthday this week since the match, reaching 102 on Wednesday.

Gladys spoke of her day at the Proact and her hopes for the new season: "I had a lovely time and the club treated me very well again. Now I have my first season ticket and I am looking forward to using it and seeing Chesterfield win some matches next year."

Head of media and communications Nick Johnson spoke more about the centurion Spireites supporter: "I have known Gladys for some time as she was a neighbour of mine.

"She came to her first ever football match just after her 100th birthday and had so much fun that she's enjoyed returning - now she has her season ticket she's eager to come along as much as possible."

All Spireites supporters aged 80 or older are eligible for free season tickets for the 2016/17 season, fans just need to bring proof of age to the Proact Stadium ticket office to have their tickets issued to them.

Season tickets remain on sale to all supporters, with the deadline for Early Bird prices - frozen for the third straight year - in place until April 29.
