Dean Saunders – New Chesterfield FC manager unveiled


Dean Saunders was unveiled as the new manager of Chesterfield on Wednesday 13th May at a press conference attended by chairman Dave Allen and chief executive Chris Turner.

The appointment follows the departure of Paul Cook, who was released from his contract to join League 2 club Portsmouth following the Spireites’ play-off defeat to Preston last weekend.

Saunders had an illustrious playing career that saw him play for the likes of Liverpool, Aston Villa, Galatasaray and Nottingham Forest – as well as earning 75 caps for Wales. Since 2008, he has taken charge of Wrexham, Doncaster Rovers, Wolves and Crawley Town before joining the Spireites today.

Chesterfield 2-1 Bournemouth – League 2 – The Last Game at Saltergate

After 10 years for me, 33 years for my Dad and 139 years in total, the final countdown on Chesterfield’s home of Saltergate finally reached zero. Chesterfield’s game against Bournemouth was the last game ever to be played at Saltergate, before the side move to the B2net stadium next season.We took plenty of photos on this brilliant, yet sad day.
