Appeal to co-ordinate travel for Blues’ derby clash

Police are asking for any coach or minibus companies taking Chesterfield FC fans to Mansfield for the local derby match this weekend to contact them.

The Spireites take on Mansfield Town at 1pm, on Saturday, March 22, at the One Call Stadium.

As part of plans to ensure the match day runs smoothly, minibuses and coaches will be escorted to and from the ground by officers.

Anyone organising a coach or minibus trip is asked to contact Football Intelligence Officer PC Dave Wright on 0300 122 8267 to find out the rendezvous point and times.

The police request follows previous confrontations between both sets of fans.
