Jordan Carson, the son of club director Ashley Carson, shared a screenshot on his personal Twitter account of his £520 win from a £20 stake on Sky Bet at odds of 25/1 on Martin Allen becoming the new manager. He captioned the tweet 'Love it Marty'.

Allen was appointed the new Spireites manager on Tuesday.

The bet is believed to have been made on May 6 - one day after Allen's then Barnet team beat Chesterfield 3-0.
