Allen's ambition for Spireites

Published Add your comment

Chesterfield's new majority shareholder Dave Allen is determined to guide the Spireites into the Championship over the next few years.

The former Sheffield Wednesday chairman, who still has shares in the Owls, was this week given the green light to invest in the League Two outfit. And with a new ground on the horizon for the club, Allen is looking forward to a positive future.

"I believe in it. I like the people here, I think the fans are a nice bunch of people, they deserve something better," he told the club's official website.

"I know it's an old ground and it's got a lot of nostalgia but times have moved on and they're now going to have an opportunity to move to a brand new ground and a brand new future.

"My ambition is the same as the directors and everybody else who is involved with the club, let's get it into the Championship. We need to get out of this division, hopefully this year if we can, get into the new ground and be in the first division and then take it from there.

"I think it's important that we build a club that is renowned for playing good football."
