THE final reminder of the Spireites’ historic old Saltergate stadium has bitten the dust...

Contractors working for Barratt Homes have brought down the last floodlight to make way for a new housing development.

Shaun Marsh, contracts manager at Barratt Homes, said: “Although the stadium has been disused for nearly two years, the demolition of the floodlights really does mark the end of an era.

“We’ve saved the fittings from the iconic floodlights which are being given to local people who have requested to keep them as mementos.”
