New Panthers badge launched

Ahead of the opening of Chesterfield Panthers RUFC’s purpose-built £2 million ground in Dunston, the Club has launched its brand new badge.


The badge, which still retains the all-important crooked spire and panther, will appear on team kits and signage around the new ground from August 2013 ahead of the start of the new season. The new badge was designed by local firm Deaf Eye Creative.

Explaining the decision to change the logo, Club President Michelle Lord explained: “After more than 90 years at our former ground in Stonegravels, the move to Dunston Road heralds a new era for the Club and it was time for our image to reflect that also.”

Nearly £2 million has been invested in the new 23-acre landscaped sports ground, which boasts three rugby pitches, a cricket square, two football pitches and a multi-use games area (MUGA) as well as a fully licensed clubhouse with extensive changing facilities– all available for private hire. The investment has created an unrivalled community sports facility in north east Derbyshire,

Funding for the new ground and facilities was made possible through the sale of the old ground at Stonegravels, as well as significant funding from Sport England, Rugby Football Foundation and Derbyshire County Council.

Chesterfield Panthers RUFC 1st XV currently play in the Midlands Division 4 East (North), however the Club offers playing opportunities for men, women and children aged from two years old.
