Chesterfield’s Proact Stadium is to host Sheffield United Women’s games.

The agreement is in place until at least the end of the current season, with United’s U23 men’s side already playing at the home of the Vanarama National League side.

Chesterfield company secretary Ashley Carson said: “I am delighted that we have been able to accommodate Sheffield United Women for the remainder of this season. Chesterfield has a great reputation for a quality stadium and an amazing pitch.

“This is also a well-needed financial injection to the football club.”

Carla Ward’s United side are currently 3rd in the second-tier FA Women’s Championship, three points off the top after seven games.
