Chesterfield in 'advanced talks' over takeover

Chesterfield's plans for a new stadium have been boosted by the news that the Coca-Cola League One club are in 'advanced talks' with potential investors.

Chairman Barrie Hubbard officially confirmed that the Spireites could become the latest Football League club to be the subject of a takeover bid this morning.

The news should help appease fans following the surprise sacking of manager Roy McFarland 24 hours earlier.

McFarland's four-year reign at Saltergate ended yesterday after just one win in the last 10 league matches.

Despite that dismal run which has left the club embroiled in a relegation dogfight, many Blues fans were convinced it would be McFarland who led Chesterfield to their proposed new 10,000 all-seater stadium.

It is hoped that today's news could help secure funding for the project and help to speed up the planning approval required for work to start at the site of the old Dema Glass factory.

Hubbard said: 'We are in advanced talks with one interested party with a view to moving the club forward with ambitions for Championship football and, of course, the stadium is all part of that.

'It could mean we are in a position for building work to commence in September but I am not taking anything for granted as you can always expect knockbacks in football.

'But I have supported Chesterfield all my life and we are as advanced as we have ever been with our plans for the future.

'I am as keen as anyone to lift this football club to make it a real asset for the town. All we are doing is a clear sign of our ambition and we really hope our efforts will be successful.'

Site owners Wilson Bowden are currently in the process of finalising their plans and Hubbard added the club would know more by the end of the month.

Meanwhile, caretaker manager Lee Richardson has expressed his sadness at the departure of McFarland but aims to 'carry on his good work' by steering Chesterfield clear of relegation.

He said: 'I am sad Roy has had to leave because he has become a friend of mine and is someone I look up to as a person. It has been a privilege for me to assist him in his four years here.

'I am very appreciative to Roy for what I have learnt and I think he is a good manager and has been a good manager for Chesterfield Football Club, so it is a difficult time for me.

'But my aim now is to carry on his good work and help the team finish as high as possible in the league - and all my energies are focused on that.

'I would like to look back on Roy's reign and give it a fitting end by picking up enough points for safety as quickly as we can.

'We go to one of the better teams in the division in Swansea on Friday night and we need to take something from that game.'
