Chesterfield have confirmed that the club have received a loan of just under £1 million.
The National League side have received the sum from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS).
Chairman Mike Goodwin told the club’s website:
“We are one of the first clubs to receive the loan, which will be used to underpin our operational costs.
“It will make a significant difference to us during these challenging times and we would like to thank the National League and Sport England for their valued support.”
