Ashley Carson resigns as Chesterfield director

National League side Chesterfield have announced that Ashley Carson has resigned as director of the club. 

The news comes off the back of a disastrous Christmas period for the Spireites, which saw Martin Allen’s side fall to a 3-1 defeat at Leyton Orient on Saturday, before they shipped in four unanswered goals against Solihull Moors on Boxing Day.

Yesterday’s result left Chesterfield in the National League drop zone and led to a pitch invasion by disgruntled supporters.

Speaking to the Derbyshire Times, the club’s Chief Executive Graham Been appeared to suggest that the events on Boxing Day may well have influenced the timing of Carson’s decision.

Been said, “The reality is, it was going to happen in any event,

Chesterfield will be desperate to reverse their poor run of form when they face Hartlepool, who have also failed to live up to expectations so far this season.
