Spireites release statement following 10 match winless run

Chesterfield FC have released an official statement after the team failed to win a match in the national league so far this season.

A video on social media has shown supporters and players exchanging words after their 2-1 defeat to Bromley on Saturday. The result saw John Sheridan's side fall to the bottom of the table.

The statement on Chesterfield F.C's official website reads: "It is acknowledged that the position we currently find ourselves in is extremely concerning following a very disappointing start to the season.

"We have one of the highest budgets in the National League and have a manager with a proven record over many years who has the full support of the board and the owner.

"Owner Dave Allen is in regular contact with John Sheridan and will continue to provide the necessary funds if further additions to the squad are identified.

"The supporters remain a credit to the club and to the town, providing loyal support both home and away. We urge supporters to continue supporting the team in the knowledge that everything is being done to improve the situation."
