Panthers win cup semi final

Chesterfield Panthers have their eye firmly on a league and cup double after they booked their place in the final of the Derbyshire 1st XV Shield on Wednesday 16 April.

Playing on pitch 1, under the floodlights, Panthers brushed higher league opposition Buxton to one side in a scrappy 39-8 semi-final success at Dunston Road. Buxton RUFC currently play in the Northern Division South Lancs & Cheshire 3.

Proud club captain Steve Avenier praised man of the match Windle, who converted four and added two penalties, under the floodlights.

“We turned it on at home under the floodlights with a very impressive performance to show our supporters what we are capable of. We now look to the final and completing the double," said Avenier.

Chesterfield Panthers face rivals Amber Valley in the final of the competition on Easter Monday at Dunston Road (1pm kick off).

Ends.
