“I wish the club all the very best and a speedy return back to where they belong in EFL….. devastated doesn’t come close.

“And thank you to all the fans who have been so supportive of me in my role…. You guys deserve success and I will be hoping Chesterfield FC can give you that success very soon.”

After appointing Lemon at the time, Blues chief executive John Croot said putting a scouting network in place was a ‘priority’.
