A one-off ball will be in use on Saturday when the Spireites face Notts County in a televised National League fixture at the Proact (5.20pm).

The custom ball is part of Vanarama’s six-week ‘MANarama’ campaign, where the league is renamed as the MANarama National League to highlight that a man dies from prostate cancer every 45 minutes in the UK.

The striking blue and orange ball has been designed in Prostate Cancer UK and Vanarama colours. It features powerful testimonies from four men affected by the disease and aims to highlight the role football can play in prompting fans to consider their health, as well as raising awareness of the most common cancer in men.

The quotes on the ball are given by four football fans from across the country affected by the disease. Since their diagnosis, all have made incredible efforts to raise awareness of the disease and through various initiatives, helped to raise thousands of pounds for Prostate Cancer UK.
