Gordon Banks tributes

21 February 2019

Sponsored by

Tributes will be paid to Spireites legend Gordon Banks, who passed away last week, at Saturday's game against Harrogate Town.

The matchday programme, featuring a photo of Gordon on the cover and a centre-spread image of him in action, includes content relating to the World Cup-winning keeper.

Jim Brown pens a personal tribute and John Croot provides his memories of the man in the 'From the Boardroom' column. There is also a Sky is Blue write-up and a look at some of the messages about Gordon that have been posted on social media by leading figures and organisations from the world of football.

Be sure to pick up your copy of the programme, on sale at the usual price of £3, from sellers around the outside of the stadium before the game and in the Club Superstore. There are also plans to make the programme available in the new Supporters Bar, located on the Harold Lilleker & Sons (North) Stand concourse.

Keith Havenhand, who played alongside Gordon when the Chesterfield youth team faced their Manchester United counterparts in the 1956 FA Youth Cup final, has been invited as a guest of the club.

Keith will be joined by former Spireites keeper Steve Cherry, who appeared in a Q&A event with Gordon at the Proact last August. 

A minute's applause will be held before kick-off with images of Gordon appearing on the big screen.
