Have your say

STUART Pearce’s England Under-21s side will be heading to Derbyshire as they restart their UEFA 2013 European Championship qualification campaign.

Pearce is to take his table-topping Young Lions to Chesterfield FC’s B2net Stadium on Monday September 10 (kick-off 7pm) for a fixture against Norway.

Chesterfield FC chief executive Chris Turner said: “This will be Chesterfield’s biggest night yet of international football so we are delighted that the FA has chosen the B2net Stadium to host the UEFA 2013 European Under-21 Championship qualifier between England and Norway.”

Following a six-month break from competitive action, the under-21s face a double header in September as they visit Azerbaijan before returning to these shores to face a Norway side they defeated 2-1 in Drammen.
