Chesterfield have today parted company with manager Martin Allen following yesterday’s 4-0 defeat at home to Solihull Moors, which saw the Spireites drop into the National League relegation zone following just four wins from 25 games.
Assistant-manager Adrian Whitbread and head of recruitment/goalkeeper coach Carl Muggleton have also left the club.
CEO Graham Bean said: “On behalf of the club, I would like to thank Martin and his staff for their hard work and wish them all the very best for the future. The search for a new manager is now underway."
Academy manager John Pemberton will take charge of the team for Saturday’s game at home to Hartlepool United.
