Local Spireites fan expresses his delight at his winning tunnel slogan being put in place at the Proact Stadium.
Chesterfield recently offered supporters the chance to be part of a new chapter at the club by suggesting an inspiring slogan to go above the tunnel.
This provoked thousands of suggestions, from inspiring to humorous, with a few rude ones thrown in. The winning slogan was finally decided by club staff, and Jonathan Davies’ suggestion was confirmed as the winner.
Davies, who originates from Chesterfield, was proud of his words ‘Commitment, Focus, Courage’ and spoke of his delight at being picked as the winner.
He said: “I think it looks great, I like the design. I hope the words can inspire the players when they come out. It adds a bit of life and character to the corridor and hopefully it will inspire them in the season to come.
Having been chosen from a short-list of four designs, the club decided on Jonathan’s inspiring words, and the Spireites fan revealed how he came up with the words.
He said: “It was the first thing that came to me really. When the club said they wanted three words, I instantly thought CFC. I thought of commitment and focus, and it was a mad panic to think of the third one, but I finally thought of courage and that was the only one I submitted. I like all the words, I think if you can do all those on a football pitch, then you can be a good player.
“I was really excited. It’s nice to come in and have a piece of history with Chesterfield and hopefully it will inspire the players throughout the years when it’s in the tunnel,” Davies added.
