Saltergate Open Day 2010

On Sunday 6th June I went to Saltergate for probably the final time for the last open day at the ground. 

A marquee was erected on the Saltergate pitch for a 3 day celebration.It started on the friday night (4th June) with the farewell banquet where many ex Chesterfield legends were present including Gordon Banks.
The Saturday night was the player of the year event, where Tommy Lee won the award and it all ended on the Sunday with an open day which featured a farewell look at Saltergate. 

Below you can see some photos from the day.
