Spire Sports Coverage of Chesterfield FC for 2018/19

Spire Radio are delighted to announce that they have become an official media partner with Chesterfield FC.

When Chesterfield begin their new season on August 4th away at Ebsfleet there will be a new team bringing live updates to #Spireites fans during the match. Alan Wilkinson, known to many fans simply as Big Al, will be leading the live updates from the stadium while Adam Marsden leads the team back in the studio.

Spire Sports presenter, Adam Marsden said “It’s a great opportunity for the station and the club to build on our already strong partnership. I look forward to being able to bring live action from the Spireites this season as well as reaction after 5pm alongside a team of very talented presenters who are excited to get the ball rolling for next season.”

Spire Sports is every Saturday from 2pm with pre-match build up from around the grounds, including Matlock and Dronfield Town. From 3pm you can expect live goal flashes and updates from the match during each half plus player and manager reactions at full time. The Fan Reaction starts at 5pm and fans can get in touch via social media, both during and after the match, email and on the phone via 01246 200 454 when Adam opens the lines.

Programme Director at Spire Radio, Simon Barnett commented; “We can’t wait to kick off the new season with Chesterfield FC – providing this level of coverage is a big challenge for us, but one I know that Alan, Adam and all of our sports team will rise to every Saturday from 2pm. As an online only station we are limited by the fact that we aren’t on a traditional radio, but we are available all around the world via our website on mobile, tablet and desktop. I’m looking forward to the launch of the Fans Reaction Show from 5pm we’ll be getting a fans eye view of the match straight after the final whistle – giving Spireites the chance to pass their verdict on the match.”
