In July 2021, Chesterfield FCs record goal scorer, Ernie Moss, passed away after a long battle with dementia.

Born in the town, Ernie, synonymous with the #8 shirt, had three spells with The Spireites and, in 2014, he was asked to perform the opening of the Chesterfield FC Memorial Garden, along with another local hero Jamie Hewitt.

Ernie has a road named after him, but the trustees and friends of the Memorial Garden want some form of permanent memorial at the stadium to honour the clubs greatest scorer, who was an even greater man.

Whilst plans have not yet been formed, the Chesterfield Community Trust, with the familys blessing, is setting up a fund with a £71,000 target, Ernie was 71 years old when he passed, to expand the Memorial Garden and commission an appropriate permanent memorial therein.

As plans develop, this page will be updated with the details.

There will be events associated with this appeal organised over the coming months, but in the meantime, any donations will be gratefully received and, if you are able to, adding in Gift Aid will help to boost the fund.

All donations, large or small, will help to ensure Ernie has a fitting reminder and it would be good to see donations featuring the number 8 which was so close to the great mans heart. The project will be overseen by Chesterfield FC Community Trust with any funds raised reserved fully for the Memorial Garden and work in Ernie's memory.

The team leading the appeal includes Peter Whiteley, Paul Goodwin, Alan Wilkinson, Ian Browes, John Croot, Nick Johnson, Terry Ward, Paul Kellett, Stuart Basson, Keith Jackson & Phil Tooley.
