Chesterfield F.C.

Chesterfield F.C.

Chesterfield Football Club ( /ˈtʃɛstərfiːld/) is an English football club based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, which plays in Football League Two, the fourth tier of English football. The club were founder members of the Football League Third Division North in 1921–22 and have remained in the Football League since that time. While they have never played in the top flight, they rose to the second tier twice in the 1930s.

Having moved from their historic home of Saltergate after the 2009–10 season, Chesterfield now play their home games at the 10,400 capacity Proact Stadium.

Three prior clubs called Chesterfield F.C. or Chesterfield Town F.C. also operated, all of them basing themselves at Saltergate. However, despite the common location, a continuously existing club can only be dated from 1919.

Chesterfield's most notable recent successes came in the 1990s, when they won the Division Three playoff final at Wembley in 1995 and reached the FA Cup semi-finals two years later. They were the first club from outside the top two divisions to reach this stage of the competition since Plymouth Argyle in 1984. On 7 May 2011 Chesterfield beat Gillingham to secure the League 2 title.

John Sheridan was given a three year contract in June 2009, along with his assistant Tommy Wright. In 2011, Dave Allen was given full ownership of the club. Chris Turner was appointed as the club's new Chief Executive. Sheridan was dismissed on 28 August 2012.
