The recent Memorial Garden celebration evening remembered those who have been lost over the last year.

As well as 32 fans, there was a mention for the FA Youth Cup finalist Archie Smith, former chairman Mike Watterson and radio broadcasting icon Bob Jackson.

Six Chesterfield players were added to the Players Wall: Kevin Austin, Mick Hughes, John Sutherland, Gordon Banks, Mick Kennedy and Kevin Randall.

A special commemorative plaque for World Cup winner Gordon Banks was unveiled by his daughter Wendy, who was accompanied by his grandson Daniel.

Michael Parkinson, who won the Gordon Banks Goalkeeping Award at the recent Community Trust Junior Awards was introduced to the more than 120 people present.

At the end of the event Eileen Randall, along with her son Kevin and wider family, unveiled her husband's portrait on the Wall of Fame.

This is an honour for those Chesterfield players who have played 250 league games or scored 75 goals for the club. Kevin is one of only five Spireites to qualify in both categories.
