Under 16s can attend the Capital One Cup game between Chesterfield and Huddersfield Town for just £1, when accompanied by a full-paying adult.

The match, in the first round of the competition, kicks off at 7:45pm on Tuesday, August 12th.

Supporters wanting to take up the offer must purchase their tickets before 5pm the day before the game.

On the day of the game, U16 tickets will rise to £7. Adults pay £14 and all concessions £7.

Marketing Director Alan Stevenson has left the club after seven years to move on to other projects.

The former keeper, who won England U23 honours, has been working part time for Spireites of late, whilst also helping York City with their proposed Stadium move.

England U17 will be playing a match at the Proact Stadium later this month.

As part of a four team tournament that also includes Italy and Czech Republic, the Young Lions will take on Portugal in Chesterfield on Friday 29th August at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost just £3 for adults and £1.50 for U16’s and they can be purchased over the phone at 01246 488232 or by emailing to

John Peacock, the U17 manager, said: “This will be the first season in a competitive UEFA tournament for the players and getting used to playing a four-group schedule like this is important in preparing us for the tests ahead.”
