Chesterfield are champions!

Today, Paul Cook’s side defeated Fleetwood Town 2-1 to ensure they topped the League Two pile on the last day of the season, writes Bob Westerdale.

They had to come from behind, though.

Matty Blair scored on 12 minutes for Fleetwood after the home defence fell apart.

It was a below-par first half - Chesterfield sending too many high and wayward balls to small forward players.

It was meat and drink for Rotherham-born Ritchie Humphreys.

The former Sheffield United man, 26, gobbled up almost every cross and pass in the visitors’ penalty box.

But the Spireites made up for it with a highly skilled, much more penetrating second half.

On 50 minutes, Sam Hird nodded in a deserved equaliser.

Four minutes later, Gary Roberts, who was having much more luck playing in field rather than left wing, curled a cracking left footer in to the opposite side of the net.

Roberts was on fire - and had a similar chance before the game was over.

The scenes then at the Proact stadium were memorable - an outpouring of joy and relief in a fans pitch invasion greeted the final whistle.

Chesterfield had certainly finished the season on a high, winning five and drawing three of their last eight games.

It had been a similar start to the campaign.

Back in August, Chesterfield set off like a house on fire, winning seven and drawing the other in eight games.

In March, they made it through to the Johnston Paints Trophy final at Wembley.

They lost that...but that has paled into insignificance.

League One - and all those local derbies beckons!
