Hundreds of kind-hearted fans turned out at Chesterfield FC’s Proact Stadium to enjoy a charity soccer match between Spireites’ legends from down the years and a team of celebrities.

Clowne-based Karen Child, who won the National Lottery in 2007, has formed a charity called The Child Foundation to help under-privileged and poorly youngsters and their families.

The match on Sunday was the charity’s first fundraiser and fans delighted over a team of soap TV stars from Emmerdale and Hollyoaks and Chesterfield legends including Jack Lester.

Chesterfield legends took the honours with a 6-3 victory.
