The Spireites have worn the branding of NAPIT for three years, but that deal has not been renewed.

“During their time as shirt sponsors, the club has enjoyed a successful spell, winning the League Two title and securing a trip to Wembley for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final.

“It has been a mutually beneficial relationship and I very much hope that we will have an opportunity to work with NAPIT again in the future.”

Michael Andrews, NAPIT chief executive, said Chesterfield’s success was beneficial to his company.

“Our sponsorship of Chesterfield FC has been an immensely enjoyable experience for the company during a highly productive three years for both organisations. “Over this period, the relationship has gone from strength to strength with success on the pitch leading to great exposure for us as a business.”
