Chesterfield have been relegated to the National League after Morecambe drew at home against Cambridge on Tuesday.

The club are bottom of League Two and 10 points from safety with three games of the campaign remaining.

It means Chesterfield will play in non-league for the first time since re-joining the Football League in 1921.

They will also start life in non-league with a new manager after Jack Lester left as manager on Monday, while his backroom staff also departed the club.

Ex-Derby, Blackpool and Chesterfield defender Ian Evatt will be in charge for the final three games of the season, assisted by academy coach Miguel Llera.
