The match went down in history as one of the most dramatic semi-finals in the competition’s history, Spireites at one point leading 2-0, then trailing 3-2 before Jamie Hewitt’s equaliser in the last minute of extra-time took the game to a replay at Hillsborough ten days later, which ultimately saw ‘Boro win 3-0 to progress to play Chelsea in the final at Wembley.

Here, we’ve delved into the archives to bring you a large selection of photos of Spireites fans enjoying both occasions, whether at the games or back home watching in the pubs and clubs of Chesterfield.
