Coca Cola League Two's Chesterfield and Conference North's Droylsden are to play a friendly. This news comes as a response to fans ironic chants of 'Can we play you every week' heard at the recent FA Cup 2nd round clashes.
Over the recent FA Cup saga including two abandonments and a replay the two clubs have formed quite a relationship (one of hatred and resent). Both parties agreed that as the sides will probably never meet in competitive football again they should have a one-off charity match. Proceeds going to the Greater Manchester Alternative Energy Fund.
A provisional date is yet to be arranged but both clubs will be on standby for a day/night of low visibility. Unfortunately Droylsden's Butcher's Arms Ground is unlikely to be available due to an upcoming 'Tug-O-War' tournament but it is thought that an appropriate beer garden or car park will be found in time.
A reporter managed to track down Droylsden manager/chairman/landlord Dave Pace at a local railway bridge and he declared it would be an ideal opportunity to unveil their new mascot 'Drama the Queen'.
On hearing the news Chesterfield manager Lee Richardson exclaimed 'I need to sit down!' It is also believed that striker Jack Lester will be performing on the pitch at half time chipping footballs into empty nets.
