Dave Allen, a lifelong spireites fan, is celebrating three successful leisure operations, two trophies and one bumper season.

He is at the helm of not only Chesterfield FC but the A & S Leisure Group, which owns Owlerton Greyhound Stadium and Napoleons Casinos, and is celebrating picking up two pieces of silverware during the 2013/2014 season.

Chesterfield FC won promotion to League One after securing their second League Two championship title in May this year, while Owlerton Greyhound Stadium was crowned the Bookmakers’ Afternoon Greyhound Services Track Champions in 2013.

Dave said that it has been a tremendously successful past 12 months and credited the strong management at both Chesterfield and Owlerton.

He added: “I’m proud to lead three such fantastic organisations. The Spireites were head and shoulders apart from the rest of the division right from the start of the season and fully deserve their place in league one.

“Owlerton continues to go from strength to strength and is now one of the busiest greyhound tracks in the country with a team of first-class trainers, owners and kennel staff who continue to lead the field at races up and down the country.”
