Lifelong supporter passes away

We are saddened to learn that lifelong supporter Dave Allen has passed away at the age of 68.

Dave, who started going to matches with his father more than 60 years ago, was a regular on the Compton Street “Pop side” at Saltergate.

When we moved to the current Technique Stadium, Dave became a Founder Member and his seat is on the Motan Colortonic South Stand.

His funeral is at Chesterfield Crematorium on Tuesday, September 15 at 2.10pm. Current regulations mean those attending will have to listen from outside.

His family have asked those attending, and anyone else who remembers Dave, to donate to Chesterfield FC Community Trust. A JustGiving page has been set up in Dave’s name:
