May 17th: The usual monster summer update is all but completed.
One or two files are waiting on the outcome of play-off matches.
Enjoy the newly-updated stuff, if "enjoy" is the right word.

                      This is a website for the history and statistics of the Chesterfield Football Club.

                           It is not the Official website of Chesterfield FC: this can be found  here

"Sky is Blue" stands independent of the Chesterfield Football Club although it is populated and maintained by long-standing supporters who have contributed to the club’s wellbeing over many years. Any views expressed on this website are those of the individual contributor and are in no way representative of the views of the Chesterfield Football Club, its players, staff, directors or supporters.

This site is an official partner for the Heritage project of the Chesterfield FC Community Trust.  More information about the Trust can be found by clicking on the logo.

The links at the top of the page will take you to our site's various sections, which will be populated as time permits.

The Blog section will track our progress as we upload the huge amount of material that has been garnered from more than thirty years of research, will note the establishment of new records as they happen and will give us a platform for stuff that doesn't really fit anywhere else.

Stats & records contains many detailed files on player stats, team-based stats and line-ups for every season, while a subsection named The Basics is a good starting-point for a general grounding in the club’s past.

Written items about moments and events will be under the Articles link, while the Games link is self-explanatory.

Our Biographies section will contain items on more than one hundred leading players, managers and club officials.

We will aim to upload a rich and varied selection of Images from our archive.

If you operate a history-based football site let me know and I'll add it to our Links.
