James Rowe has spoken of his pride at managing Chesterfield after being overwhelmed by the response from supporters to the club’s crowdfunding appeal.
The £10,000 target set to purchase sports science equipment was reached just two days after being launched.
Commenting on the response, Rowe said: “I’ve honestly never witnessed anything like that since I’ve been involved in football as a young lad. To do that in two days just shows the calibre of the club.
“It’s not the monetary value, it’s the gesture.”
