The game, expected to feature some of the club’s younger stars, will be played at St George’s Park in Burton-upon-Trent and supporters will be given free entry.

A club spokesman said: “ “There was a breakdown in communication, leading to the wrong venue being announced.

“On a positive note, it will be good opportunity for supporters to be able to watch a Chesterfield team in action at The FA’s national football centre.”
