Dean Kirk

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of lifelong Spireite Dean Kirk, who recently passed away.

Dean was a fan of Chesterfield FC from being a boy, going to matches with his dad (Stan), brothers and family. The love for the team then travelled on through Dean’s daughter and son, who he took to the games.

With his daughter Megan thinking it wasn’t cool to go with her dad anymore, he then took enjoyment in taking his son Joe up and down the country to follow the team.

They experienced a few highs and a lot more lows throughout the seasons but along the way made some lifelong friends and memories.

Dean’s son and daughter said: “The family take comfort in all the connections made through Chesterfield Football Club and would like to thank everyone for their kind words and support.

“We want to remember a much-loved dad, dear friend and top Spireite with all the fun and smiles he brought to peoples lives by paying this tribute to him, as he would have wanted, through the club he loved.”
