A commercial partnership has been agreed between the Spireites and Football Fuels, who produce and supply sports nutrition products specifically designed for footballers.
Football Fuels provide Chesterfield with a range of nutritional supplements to aid the players with their physical performance and post-match recovery.
The company, which is owned by Chesterfield’s strength & conditioning coach Mal Purchase and his wife, also supplies other clubs/players in the Premier League and Football League, together with non-league and grassroots teams.
Purchase said: “The products we provide were two years in the making, as they had to undergo stringent tests by HFL Informed Sport, who certify that sports nutrition products don’t include any banned substances.
“We developed the products because there was nothing football-specific on the market. Players need a stronger dosage level for 90 minutes. They also need to be secure in the knowledge they are taking safe supplements which will improve their physical ability on the pitch.
“They are given a pre-match shake before the game, along with gels at half-time and during the match. After the match they drink a recovery shake to prepare for the next game. This also applies in high intensity training sessions.”
