Chesterfield have reduced their playing budget by £1.2million from last year, says manager Martin Allen.
In quotes reported by Graham Smyth from Allen’s Friday morning press conference, the ex-Brentford boss, who took over the Spireites this summer, said they are working on a greatly reduced budget from last season. The club suffered relegation from League Two, ending their 97-year stay in the Football League.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s game at home to Leyton Orient, Allen said Chesterfield have reduced the budget by £1.2million this season. The former Barnet and Notts County manager described it as ‘an amazing job’ to put the current squad together.
Allen also added that the club are close to agreeing a deal for midfielder Jordan Sinnott to leave the Derbyshire club.
