On 22nd September 1962, Chesterfield came out on top in a seven-goal thriller with York City.

The 4-3 win, at Bootham Crescent, was part of a six-game unbeaten run for the Spireites.

A crowd of 2,986 saw the clash.

Chesterfield went on to finish 15th in the old English Fourth Division that season, under the management of Northern Irishman Tony McShane.

It is believed he was the first Spireites boss to be allowed to pick a side without the board’s input.

His appointment, in 1962, saw him inherit a side who had finished in its lowest ever position.
