Chesterfield FC Women return to the Proact this weekend when they face Long Eaton United Ladies in the semi-finals of the Derbyshire Cup on Sunday.

Their opponents are in the Women’s National League, two divisions above the Spireites, so it will be a tough test.

Chesterfield, who beat previous winners Derby County on penalties in the last round, have never reached the final of the Derbyshire Cup before.

Youngsters Rachael Kelly and Courtney Caunt are expected to feature in the squad again.

Manager Michael Noon said: "We are looking forward to the game after a good win last weekend and the game at the Proact the week before.

"There is no pressure on our players, as underdogs they can go out and enjoy the game. We’re not expected to win but we’ll be doing our very best to cause an upset.

"I'd urge all Spireites fans to come along and support the girls and help us try and get into the Derbyshire Cup final for the first time in history."

The game kicks off at 1.30pm with free entry for Chesterfield season ticket holders. Admission for non-season ticket holders is just £3 for adults and £1 for Under 16s.
