Support for Trust’s work from manager and players

Spireites manager James Rowe and his players continue to support the work being done by the Community Trust, as demonstrated by a couple of virtual meetings held via Zoom recently.

James spoke to members of the Community Trust staff to find out more about the various projects delivered by the Trust.

Clearly impressed by what he heard, James later tweeted to say: “Proud to hear of the positive impacts in the community they are having on so many lives.”

Curtis Weston also gave up his spare time to chat to members of the Football for Life mental health team.

The midfielder talked about lockdown, playing in largely empty stadiums and the positive feeling at the club under the new manager.

John Croot, chief executive of both the Community Trust and the club, said: “It is great to see James taking an active interest in the work being done by the Trust in the local community and he is keen to support our efforts.

“I would also like to thank Curtis for talking to our Football for Life team and providing an insight into what it is like to be a professional footballer.

“The players do some valuable work in the community, supporting the Trust’s initiatives, which is very much appreciated.”
