During the 1996–97 English football season, Chesterfield competed in the Football League Second Division.

Season summary[edit]

For much of the season Chesterfield were in the Third Division play-off race, but a late slump saw them fall off the pace before a resurgence at the end of the season took them up to tenth - four points off the play-offs. In the FA Cup, Chesterfield reached the semi-finals for the first time in their history, before being knocked out by Premiership side Middlesbrough; they also reached the semi-finals of the League Cup, but were knocked out by the same side. Middlesbrough would later finish as runners-up in the finals of both competitions.
