SIR Elton John will soon be taking ownership of a couple of Spireites replica shirts ahead of his big concert at the B2net Stadium on Saturday, June 9.

The World’s biggest rock star has requested a replica Chesterfield shirt for himself, with No 9 on the back, and a replica shirt for his son Zachary.

Chesterfield’s director of marketing Alan Stevenson said. “Elton John retains his keen interest in football as honorary life president of Watford FC but his support for the Spireites is not so well-known and so we are delighted to meet his request.”

The concert is the biggest ever to be staged in Chesterfield and the last few tickets are now on sale.
