Chesterfield Senior Spireites F.C. was originally started by Chesterfield F.C. Community Trust in association with Chesterfield Borough Council in 2011 as part of the Walk for Health programme, to help older people keep active and provide a social outlet. The club has grown from a few people struggling with three-a-side to over ninety members and some potential new ones trying us out. We are now a stand-alone not-for-profit club with an elected committee to run it. The current club was established in December 2013.
We play every Monday and Friday from 11:00 to 12:00 at the Akademy, Callywhite Lane, Dronfield S18 2XR where there are four available 3G Astroturf pitches. This session is limited to new members over 50 years of age. Parking, changing facilities and showers are available and we get together afterwards for a sociable chat and a drink.
We also have an evening session at the same venue on Tuesdays from 19:00 to 20:00 which, while aimed at the younger end of our membership, who are still working during the day, is also open to all new members over 50.
If you are interested in joining us, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or just turn up and check us out. The first session is FREE and then you pay a monthly membership fee of £7.50.
Hasland Walking Football Club, formed at the beginning of 2015, originally joined Senior Spireites as a satellite club in September 2015 for administrative reasons but although running as an independent session. is now integrated into the club.
We play every Thursday from 10:00 to 11:00 on the outdoor Multi-Use Games Area (tarmac surface) next to the pavilion in Eastwood Park, Hasland.
If you are interested in joining the "Hasland Has-bins" contact Ianed@live.co.uk, or just turn up and check us out on a Thursday.
