Chesterfield FC looks to go up for sale

Club director and company secretary Ashley Carson have announced League One club Chesterfield are to be put up for sale by their majority shareholder Dave Allen.

Chester­field, who appointed Gary Caldwell as their new manager on 17 January, stand second from bottom in the League One table.

Following Saturday's home defeat by 10-man Oldham Athletic, the Spireites are three points shy of safety after a run of just one win in eight games, which was at home to bottom club Coventry.

Allen, who previously had shares in Sheffield Wednesday, first invested in Chesterfield in 2009, taking over as chairman in 2012 before resigning in November 2016.

Allen stated then that he had put in £1.9m investment over the previous two years, for which Allen, who owns 60 per cent of the club's shares, had not personally charged any interest.
