Our weekly “This Week in Spireites History” feature provides Spireites everywhere a chance to look back at the history of the club and - in some cases - remember events that have shaped the club.

The Spireites have had an up and down history off the field but this week is one of the most important weeks in the history of the Spireites.

This week in 1920 the club was incorporated as a trading business. After the club's formation as Chesterfield FC (formerly Chesterfield Muncipal FC), in 1919; the club was incorporated as a limited company on the January 24, 1920 and the name Chesterfield FC has since stuck.

As well as this being an important week off the pitch for the Spireites, it’s also a week in which an on the pitch record was broken. 

On the January 1935 Ambrose Brown broke the record for the most goals scored in a game for Chesterfield, he scored an incredible five goals against rivals Mansfield Town in the Division 3 (N) Cup. 

In total, Brown made 27 appearances for the Spireites, scoring ten goals during season 1934/1935.
