We are sad to hear the reports of the passing of John Ridley #651. John won the Anglo-Scottish Cup with @ChesterfieldFC & made 124 @EFL appearances as a Spireite. His picture will be placed in the Memorial Garden (when safety allows) & he'll be added to the players wall in time. pic.twitter.com/itMidqMaAR— Chesterfield FC FPA (@CFCFPA) May 3, 2020
