AN overjoyed Spireites fan left Wembley all smiles after enjoying two wins.

Not only did Grant Herrington watch his beloved Blues clinch the trophy, but he also won £500 after scoring a penalty during half-time, as part of football TV show Take It Like A Fan.

The 19-year-old, of Durham Close, New Whittington, faced legendary goalkeeper Dave Beasant in the shoot-out.

Grant, who took part in the show after being recommended by a pal, said: “It was quite nerve-wracking as I was facing all the Swindon Town fans but they were good sports.

“I got the ball into the back of the net and felt ecstatic.”

Grant plans to spend the cash on a weekend break – and he owes his dad some money.

His show will air on Sky Sports One tomorrow at 10pm.
