Following the curtailment of the league campaign, there was a positive ending to the season for the Spireites women’s team as they were promoted to the East Midlands Premier Division.
After an application process where the clubs on and off pitch performance was taken into consideration, the side were rewarded with a place in the fifth tier ahead of the new season.
The league will consist of some good ties with Notts County, Northampton Town and Mansfield Town all in the same division next year.
Commenting on the promotion, first team manager, Michael Noon said “We’re all absolutely delighted with the news, all of the players, staff and board members work so hard week in week out and to be recognised for that means so much.
"We started out on this journey three years ago when the club was in the 7th tier of women’s football, we achieved promotion in the first season and have had the past two seasons cancelled due to Covid so to say that we’ll be starting next season in the 5th tier is brilliant for everyone involved in the club.“
Chesterfield FC Women play their home games at Chesterfield Rugby Club and look forward to welcoming supporters back to watch the games when they return in late August.
If you are interested in helping shape the future of the team they are presently looking for team sponsorship for the first team and Juniors, plus have great advertising opportunities.
