Rivalry To Be Cast Aside In Memory Of Supporter

Mansfield Town and Chesterfield will cast aside their rivalry on Saturday by paying their respects in memory of 12-year-old Spireites' supporter Abbie Jacques, who sadly died last month.

The club will show an image of Abbie on the One Call Stadium scoreboard in the 12th minute of the match and encourage both sets of supporters to join in applause to remember the former Chesterfield season ticket holder.

Abbie died last month due to complications related to type 1 diabetes, which she had been diagnosed with at six.

A club spokesman said: "We send our sincere condolences to Abbie's family at this sad time as well as everyone at Chesterfield Football Club. We were incredibly sad to hear of Abbie's passing. To lose someone at such a young age is heartbreaking and our thoughts and prayers are with Abbie's loved ones.”

"Though we are local rivals, we stand with Chesterfield and their supporters at a time of such sadness."

The match at One Call Stadium will kick-off at 1pm. Tickets must be bought in advance of the fixture from the Stags' ticket office or online via www.stagstickets.co.uk until midnight on Friday. Tickets cannot be purchased on the day of the game.

The Stags are expecting their highest home attendance in over a decade with 7,500 tickets already sold.
