Spireites chiefs have narrowed down their search for a new manager after receiving dozens of applications for the role.
After considering all the applications, a short list is being drawn up and an appointment is expected to be made next week.
Director & company secretary Ashley Carson said: “There has been strong interest in the vacancy and we are now in the process of identifying who we would like to interview.
“It is vitally important that we make the right choice. That is why we have not rushed into making an appointment just for the sake of it."
