The funeral service for lifelong Spireite Peter Stockton, who passed away recently, will be held at the Church of St Mary and All Saints (the Crooked Spire) on Friday, October 12, starting at 2.30pm, followed by a private cremation.

Those attending are asked to wear something blue.

After Peter made a memorable call to BBC Radio Sheffield's 'Football Heaven' phone-in show, during which he talked about his terminal illness, he was invited to present the matchball to Drew Talbot before kick-off in the final home game of last season, against Newport.

The day before his 70th birthday at the end of July, Peter was invited to attend a training session before enjoying lunch with the players and management.
