New vice president appointed

Mike Warner has been named as the new vice president of Chesterfield FC.

After accepting the honorary position, Mike said: “I am delighted to have been handed the role of vice president and I will do my very best to be a good ambassador for the club.

“I joined the board in 1993 so my association with Chesterfield spans more than 25 years and I have a deep affection for the club.”

Chairman Mike Goodwin added: “We are very pleased that Mike has accepted our invitation to become vice president.

“Mike was offered the role in recognition of his vital contribution to the running of the club over many years.

“This includes being instrumental in helping save the club from going out of business in 2001, when he paid-off a six-figure loan following the Darren Brown debacle.

“It should also be noted that without Mike’s willingness to write-off a substantial sum owed to him, the Community Trust’s takeover of the club would not have been possible.”
