A Facebook conversation with a Chesterfield fan from Ukraine led to four Spireites visiting the Eastern European country at the weekend.

Pitch-side announcer Howard Borrell travelled with Paul Kellett, Mark Barton and John Taylor to Lviv, where they met Volodymyr Holod and his family.

The quartet took in their first professional futsal game and a second tier league game and enjoyed the sights of Ukraine’s second city.

Volodymyr, who writes about his passion for the club on social media, said: "It's been wonderful to chat with Chesterfield fans about their memories. I now feel I know the club so much more after their visit. It's made me love the Spireites even more."

Howard said: "Volodymyr and his family were the perfect hosts, ensuring we managed to watch two matches and enjoy their beautiful home city of Lviv."
