Chesterfield: Club Profile
Up we both went together from League Two in 2011; our adventure there cut short a lot sooner before theirs was. In fact, it wasn’t until a poor 2016-7 campaign that a return to League Two beckoned for The Spireites. And the 2017-8 season proved even worse; a second straight relegation dumping Chesterfield into the realm of non-league football.

Travel Information – Distance: 140 miles
From Stevenage, the process involves a trip straight up the M1 with precious little deviation. After a 100-odd-mile journey northbound on the M1, exit at Junction 29 for the Chesterfield-bound A617 and at the end of the dual carriageway, turn right onto the northbound A61 for Sheffield. The stadium will be located on the right after taking a left at the first roundabout.
The club car park is for permit holders only, while the nearby Tesco is patrolled on a regular basis. So your safest option for parking your motor will be to find a space on local side streets where available.

The walk from the railway station isn't a particularly short one. Leave the station towards the town centre on Crow Lane, before turning right onto Malkin Lane. At the roundabout, head straight onto the B6543 Brewery Street over the A61 and follow it around to the left.
Turn right onto Holywell Street and continue along the right hand side of the road in a straight-ish direction for Newbold Rd (B6057). Head onto Sheffield Road (B6057) for the longest stretch of the journey; passing Chesterfield Panthers Rugby Club on the left.
As you approach the roundabout outside Gordon Lamb Toyota, the ground may well be visible but head straight ahead onto Sheffield Road if not.
