Chesterfield FC player Georg Margreitter is enjoying a slice of the action - after his cheesy nickname earned him free pizza for the rest of the season.

Fans and team mates alike call the defender ‘Pizza’ because of his distinctive surname and the joke has now paid off thanks to his local branch of Domino’s. The Austrian was invited round to have a go at making a pizza, boosting his energy levels in time for tomorrow’s big derby against Sheffield United.

“It’s the first time my nickname has paid off,” he said.
