Karen's key role

Chesterfield FC has signed up another sponsor for the b2net stadium currently being developed at Whittington Moor.

The south stand for home supporters will be known as the Karen Child Stand after the former national lottery winner from Clowne, who has sponsored the Spireites' Kop at Saltergate for the past two seasons.

Karen, who has now signed a long-term deal at the b2net, said: ''I have thoroughly enjoyed my period of sponsorship at Saltergate so had no hesitation in wanting to continue the connection with my local football club at the new b2net stadium."

CFC director of marketing Alan Stevenson said: "We wish to thank Karen for her valuable support and long-term commitment by sponsoring the south stand which is exclusively for our home supporters."

Karen is the owner of The Village Bar, a new leisure pub and nightspot in Clowne.
