Hilarious Chesterfield fans make the most of Wealdstone trip

Chesterfield fans have had plenty to cheer about this season with their side having already been confirmed as champions of the National League.

Ahead of their clash with Wealdstone on Saturday, April 13, a section of their supporters decided to continue the party-like atmosphere at the club by making the trip in fancy dress.

Let's hope the players are a little more focused than the fans.

Chesterfield supporters don fancy dress

One of the best feelings in football is promotion, an achievement made all the sweeter when it is accompanied by a league title – and that is exactly what the Spireites have managed to do this season.

These successes can be few and far between and, as a result, should never be taken for granted. So, who can blame their supporters for having a good time and making the most of an away day by travelling in fancy dress? They deserve to be having a fantastic time.

But, if you are a Wealdstone fan who will be attending the game, make sure to keep an eye out for some famous football fans at the match. Among the travelling group is British icon ‘Ali-G', Nintendo's ‘Mario' and an array of nuns – it truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

An excellent campaign for the Spireites

Evidently, there is a party-like atmosphere running through the veins of the club right now, and when you delve into the statistics of their season it becomes clear why.

Champions of the National League with five games to spare, Chesterfield secured the trophy after an impressive 3-0 victory against Boreham Wood, sparking a pitch invasion from the home supporters.

But, perhaps more impressively, the Spireites haven't just been successful, but have entertained us along the way too. Paul Cook's side have won 30 games at the time of writing, scoring 102 goals and conceding just 60. That means they have netted an average of 2.37 times per game and boast a goal difference of 42 – 18 more than second-placed Barnet.

After that win against Boreham Wood, the club also had the opportunity to break Wrexham's record of most wins in a single National League season (34), but two consecutive defeats after the fact soon made that milestone impossible for the side to reach.

However, it has still been a fantastic season for Chesterfield and nobody can blame their fans for getting a little carried away as the campaign edges towards completion.
