The Spireites will now host the Lilywhites at 12.30pm instead of 3pm.

All National League fixtures on Saturday will kick-off at this time, as will EFL games.

"As a mark of respect, Vanarama National League matches scheduled for 3pm on Saturday, 17 April will be moved to 12:30pm to avoid a clash with the funeral of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh," the National League said.

The Spireites will play Bromley at the earlier kick-off time of 12.30pm.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Funeral will take place on Saturday at 3pm in St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

The funeral service will begin with a national minute’s silence.

The service will be preceded by a ceremonial procession inside the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The occasion will recognise and celebrate the Duke’s life and his more than 70 years of service to the Queen, the UK and the Commonwealth.
