CHESTERFIELD Borough Council has sent its congratulations to Chesterfield Football Club following the club’s promotion to League One and securing the League Two Championship title.
The council and the club will be staging a civic reception in July to mark the club’s success.
Cllr John Burrows, leader of Chesterfield Borough Council said: “This has been a tremendous year for the Spireites and one that will be remembered for many, many years by all of those involved with the club.
“The success of a town’s local football club is always good for the town itself, giving a real morale boost as well as helping the economic prosperity of the town.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming the team, management and supporters to a civic reception at the Town Hall in July where we can all officially celebrate their wonderful achievement.”
