Season in numbers

For everyone involved with Chesterfield Football Club, the 2023/24 season will go down as an unforgettable one.

Supporters witnessed a promotion, records broken, and many memories made.

With just under a month until the 2024/25 fixtures are released, we thought we would look back at the numbers from the season just gone.


Our final day 3-2 win over Maidenhead United took us to 98 points for the campaign – a club record.

This beat our previous best total of 91, which was set back in 1984/85. Another title was won that year.


The Spireites scored a record 106 goals in the league, with 120 in all competitions.

106 broke the previous record of 102 scored in the 1930/31 promotion-winning season.

Barnet were the next highest scorers in the league with 91 – 15 goals below the Blues.


Captain Jamie Grimes scored the 100th league goal of the season with his second in the 3-0 home win against Boreham Wood.

The last goal before Chesterfield secured the National League title scored by the skipper and bringing up a century of goals.


Paul Cook became the first manager in the history of the Spireites to win two league titles as a manager.

His first came back in 2013/14 before securing a second championship, ten years later.


Ollie Banks became the fifth player to have won two league title with Chesterfield – one in 2013/14 and one in 2023/24.

He joins Horace Wass, Ernie Moss, Tommy Lee and Drew Talbot in the illustrious group.

The midfielder also won the 1866 Player of the Year and Goal of the Season awards to go along with his National League Player of the Month award for October.


Cook has now managed 271 games for Chesterfield Football Club over his two spells.

During that time, he has won 137 games. This includes 69 wins in the 126 games he has manged in his second stint.


The number of goals that Will Grigg scored in all competitions during his first season at the club.

He scored 25 in the league with one coming in the FA Cup during the 5-0 home victory against Kettering Town.

His last goal of the campaign came in the 4-2 away defeat to FC Halifax Town when he found the net from close-range.


Paul Cook’s side recorded the most wins in a league season throughout the club’s history with 31.

This saw records equalled with home and away wins during a campaign.


Heading into the 90tth minute in the final game of the season, Chesterfield were drawing at home to Maidenhead United.

However, a late long-range strike from Ollie Banks gave the champions their 31st victory of the season as well as their 19th home win of the season.

This equalled the tallies from the 1925/26, 1930/31 and 1969/70 seasons, which means it is a record at Whittington Moor.


Arguably the Spireites’ most important away win all year tied the record for most victories on the road in a season.

Michael Jacobs and Will Grigg scored in a 2-0 win over Barnet to bring this team level with a the 1994/95 squad that achieved the same feat.

No wins in the final six away games of the campaign meant that the record would not be broken.


The Spireites only fell to defeat once in 23 league games this season at the SMH Group Stadium – 26 in all competitions.

This tied a record set in the 1925/26 and 1956/57 campaigns and set a record at our current home.


Joe Quigley scored in our last away game of the season to bring our away goals tally to 41.

This beat the record set back in the 1956/57 season when Chesterfield found the net away from home 36 times.


Between Harry Tyrer and Ryan Boot, they kept a combined 14 clean sheets in all competitions.

This included shut-outs against League One sides Portsmouth and Leyton Orient in the FA Cup.


The number of people that packed into the SMH Group Stadium to watch the 3-2 win over Maidenhead United – the biggest home crowd of the season.

It also holds the record for the biggest crowd ever at the stadium, beating the previous best of 10,089 for the 5-0 win over Rotherham United.


To end this season in numbers, we’ll look at a couple of numbers that will impact next campaign.

First of all, 2,089. This is the number of days between Chesterfield’s last game in the EFL and the return fixture to the EFL.


There are only 27 days until the fixtures for the 2024/25 League Two season are released.

On Wednesday, June 26, the whole of the Football League will find out who they face in the first game of the new campaign.


Finishing off with another club record, 5,214 is a record for season tickets sold for both Saltergate and the SMH Group Stadium.

Season tickets are still available ahead of our return to the EFL. If you haven’t already, you can purchase your season ticket(s) here:
