Proact Stadium, home of Chesterfield FC.

Ms Richardson, a lifelong supporter of the club, was appointed just under a year ago on October 23, 2018.

"I’m hugely disappointed to announce I’ve just resigned as associate director of Chesterfield FC," she said

"When I first accepted the role, I said I would support the board externally, challenge internally, but not compromise my professional integrity. Unfortunately my ability to influence and pull the club closer to the community has been limited and I no longer feel able to support the current leadership. I wish the club the very best and hope the town and its fans soon have a team and club they can be proud of."
