Panthers secure promotion

Chesterfield Panthers 1st XV achieved what they promised to do when they moved to their new £1.8 million ground and facilities in Dunston – achieve promotion.

A 44 – 20 victory away against Belper on Saturday 15th March not only secured the mighty Panthers their 14th win in a row but also promotion to Midlands 3 East (North). It is Panthers’ first promotion in 15 years.

Now all they need to do is continue their winning streak until the end of the season and take the top position in the table. They currently hold the top position and have three games left in hand. The final match of the season is on Saturday 12th April away to Leesbrook, when Panthers will learn whether they have achieved the double.

Following the victory coach Derek Sherlock said: “Although not playing to our full potential and some questionable defence, I am over the moon that we have guaranteed promotion today. We now look to cap off such a successful season by winning our final three games to become champions.”
