Chesterfield have tonight parted company with manager Gary Caldwell after eight months in charge.
Today's 2-1 defeat at home to Accrington Stanley leaves the Spireites with just one victory from their opening ten games of the season.
Director & company secretary Ashley Carson said: "Gary has worked very hard during his time at the club, but we find ourselves in a lowly position after providing him with substantial backing in the transfer market.
"After making a very poor start to the season, we feel that now is the time to appoint a new manager to bring about a change in fortunes."
No further comment will be made at this stage.
