Some even joked that Lionel Messi’s move to PSG had been trumped by Tshimanga’s switch to the Technique!

Here’s what supporters have been saying on Twitter...

@benaramsdale: “Asante, Danny Rowe & Tshimanga is an absolutely ludicrous strike force at National League level. What a force Chesterfield are going to be.”

@ojmooney: “Genuinely so excited for this season. Unbelievable strike force and great additions in all areas of the pitch. Real ambition from the board to back Rowe in the way they have done. Now get me back in that ground!!”

@SpireiteGazette: “I can’t believe it. That is easily signing of the season on a National League level. Kabango alongside Rowe is a deadly strike force and that’s without Denton and Asante. Massive shout to the Trust and those at the top of the club for showing ambition and backing.”

@Spireiteswrite: “Last time I saw a reaction like this to a signing. We signed Sam Clucas.”

@_TJStone: “Looks like Messi to PSG won’t be the biggest signing of the day.”

@SpireiteLauren: “Oh my god. As if I wasn't excited enough about this season!!!!!”

@JackoThecrooks: “Oh how different a year makes. We’ve got our club back!”

@JoeMattison_: “Us and Stockport have to be favourites for the title now surely?”

@lukef3ather: “There is a 0% chance Town finish lower than 1st.”

@JonesyLad1996: “Oh my days what a statement signing that is.”
