Chesterfield’s MP Sends Good Luck Message to Spireites

In anticipation of Chesterfield FC’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy cup final tie at Wembley this Sunday, Chesterfield MP Toby Perkins has given his backing to the ground breaking Spireites and their fans.

Thousands of Spireites of all ages will descend on the Capital to paint the town blue and hope to see their local heroes lift the Cup.

The Spireites, who have defeated four League 1 sides in Notts County, Preston North End, Tranmere Rovers and Oldham Athletic on the way to their first ever Wembley cup final will face League Two promotion contenders Swindon Town.

The Robins managed by colourful Italian Paulo Di Canio will prove to be stern opposition but Toby Perkins believes that Chesterfield have what it takes to prevail in one of their biggest fixtures in the Club’s 145 year history.

Toby Perkins said: ‘The Spireites have excelled in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. Whatever the outcome this weekend, they have brought the town together, provided a welcome respite in a tough season and if they can play like they have done already in this competition I know they can be celebrating on Sunday night.’


Toby Perkins has kindly been offered two corporate tickets to Sunday’s match by Wembley Stadium Sponsors National Express. If you know of two deserving people in the local community who would like to attend but don’t have tickets please email
