Statement re Trust’s Aims

Chesterfield FC Community Trust’s aims for the future of Chesterfield Football Club have been outlined following the announcement of plans to purchase the majority shareholding in the club.

The Trust would like to reassure supporters that funds are in place from credible partners. Subject to the satisfactory outcome of due diligence and valuations, the Trust will purchase the club outright with sufficient funds in place to restructure the club over the next 12-18 months.

For over 150 years, the club has been at the heart of the north Derbyshire community and as a proven, respected organisation, the Trust will ensure that this continues.

There are plans to overhaul the expenditure to bring it in line with income streams in order to make the club financially viable.

The Trust will be open, honest and transparent with supporters, keeping them informed of developments when possible.

The Trust board is made up of local people who have the interests of the club at heart, featuring individuals who have been selected on the basis of their skillset and experience.

A further statement will be released at the appropriate time.
