Inspirepac’s CEO Chris Marples unveiled his company’s new sponsored shirt for Chesterfield CC at the club’s annual dinner this week.

The inspirepac logo will be blazoned across the shirts and fleeces of all junior and senior teams for the 2012 season as part of the company’s continuing sponsorship of the Queen’s Park based club.

“We are proud to be so closely associated with a local company that has won so many awards both nationally and locally,” said club chairman Mike Taylor.

The club has also announced that Alex Hibbert is stepping down as the 1st XI captain after a successful four-year stint which included the winning of the Derbyshire Premier League in 2008.

Former Derbyshire wicketkeeper James Pipe is taking over as captain with young Chesterfield opener Ben Slater as vice captain in a side with a wealth of experience including Wes Durston who is Derbyshire’s Player of the Year for 2011 and who has received the accolade of the County Championship Second Division’s Player of the Year.
