Calling all Chesterfield fans!

The Derbyshire Times wants to hear your memories of the best Spireites’ matches from down the years.

Whether it is a memorable cup match or a key league tussle, or even a particular goal - if it sparks good memories for you then we want to hear about it.

We want to hear about not only your favourite matches but also your favourite players - whether they are present-day players or from yesteryear.

As the cold snap engulfs the country today we take a look through the archives at some of the Spireites’ matches that have been affected by snow and frost.

Over the coming months we plan on running a series of retro lookbacks for Spireites supporters to enjoy with crucial pictures and moments from the club’s history.
