Chesterfield 9/1 to win League Two next season after sealing National League title

With Chesterfield officially clinching the National League title after a comfortable 3-0 victory over Boreham Wood on Saturday, we look at how they'll fare in League Two next season.

League Two 2024/25

The Spireites have enjoyed an outstanding campaign under the auspices of manager Paul Cook in the National League this term, winning a staggering 30 of their 41 matches to seal the league title with five games to spare.

Chesterfield's promotion back to the Football League ends a six-year spell for the club outside of the Football League, with the Spireties having been relegated from League Two back in 2017/18.

Northern Irish striker Will Grigg has been a key figure in their success this season, with the ex-Brentford, Wigan and Sunderland striker second in the National League's goalscoring standings on 25, with only Eastleigh's Paul McCallum having notched more.

Attentions will now turn to how dominant the National League winners can fare in League Two, with last year's promoted duo experiencing mixed fortunes in England's fourth tier this season - with Wrexham challenging for promotion and Notts County struggling in the bottom half.

bet365's Steve Freeth said: "There won't be the same fanfare as when Wrexham got promoted and they're a bigger price than the Red Dragons to seal back-to-back promotions but they have a canny manager in Paul Cook and he could have a competitive budget at his disposal."

Chesterfield League Two 2024/25 Odds:

Chesterfield certainly have an experienced manager to hang their hat on back in League Two, with Paul Cook boasting plenty of Football League experience on his CV as both a player and a manager.

Cook represented the likes of Burnley, Wolves and Coventry during his playing days whilst leading clubs such as Portsmouth, Ipswich and Wigan as a manager.

The Spireites have been in sensational fettle in 2024, losing just three matches, and victories over Portsmouth and Leyton Orient in the FA Cup have proven they are capable of mixing it with teams of a higher level.

Already possessing a strong squad which bulldozed its way through the National League, another fruitful transfer window in the summer could leave Chesterfield well placed to hold their own in what will likely be an extremely competitive League Two next season.
