Fitting company HTM Products has stated it has withdrawn its support of the League One club “in light of recent events”.

It comes in the week of Chesterfield’s signing of controversial figure Ched Evans on Monday.

The former Sheffield United and Wales striker had a rape conviction quashed earlier this year and will have a retrial in October.
