Following positive discussions between the two parties, the ban which had prevented the Derbyshire Times from gaining access to media facilities at the Proact has been lifted.

The news has been welcomed by the newspaper and both parties now look forward to working together ahead of the new season.

A ban was put in place at the end of May following a breakdown in the club's relationship with the newspaper.

The Derbyshire Times maintained its level of coverage during the ban however, sending a reporter to sit in the stands at recent home games.

Chris Turner, chief executive of the Spireites, said: "We enjoy a harmonious working relationship with various local media organisations and we are keen to have a similar association with our local newspaper.

"We both need to draw a line under what has happened in the past and move on with a positive outlook for the forthcoming season and beyond."

Derbyshire Times' managing director Mark Edwards says the newspaper remains committed to providing the most extensive Spireites coverage for readers and wishes the club success in the coming season.

He said: "We're delighted that this matter has now been resolved. We remain committed to reporting on all aspects of the club in detail and look forward to a successful season and a proactive working relationship."
