Chesterfield super fan Mick Beddingham has been named the Sky Bet League One Fan of the Month for October.

As well as following the first team, Mick is best known as being a great supporter of the youth team, for whom he volunteers and raises funds.

He travels to all of the club’s U18 games, home and away, with the team and management and for many years, Mick has raised funds for the club’s youth section through raffles and other fundraising activities.

“His commitment has been recognised by youth team staff and he now helps out on match days on a voluntary basis.

Mick said: “I am absolutely over the moon to win the award.

“I want to thank Sky Bet for selecting me as the winner.

“I decided to get involved with the academy 15 years ago. I have been raising funds ever since and I have been able to raise thousands of pounds.

“I am now attempting to raise enough money to kit out the whole academy with a Chesterfield bag to use on match days so they look professional.”

Chesterfield Chief Executive Chris Turner added: “I am delighted that Mick’s contribution behind the scenes has been acknowledged in this way. He fully deserves the accolade after working tirelessly on behalf of the club, raising funds for the academy and helping out at youth-team games. Mick’s input is very much appreciated by everyone at the club.”
