Manager James Rowe came across the band’s single Run Away Instead on Twitter and asked if they would get involved.

And it was a dream come true for The Rosadocs’ frontman Keelan Graney from Clay Cross who is a lifelong Spireites fan.

Keelan said: “It was incredible to be asked.

"For me personally it felt like everything had come full circle as I have followed the Spireites from being a young child, seeing them first at Saltergate. My first job was even in the hospitality section at the Technique Stadium when I was 15.

"To then be asked to collaborate with the club because of my music was a massive deal for me.”

To launch the kit, The Rosadocs, which is made up of Keelan, lead guitarist Joe Egan, bassist Adam Sleight and drummer Callum Raynor, donned the new strips and filmed a video of them performing Run Away Instead on the halfway line of Chesterfield FC’s Technique stadium.

Keelan said: “We spent a whole day filming in the ground and even had the new shirts printed with Rosadocs 54 on the back.

"We have extremely exciting future plans with the club that we can’t reveal too much about right now but it’s great to see the club is back in great hands.”
