City Communications are pleased to sponsor Chesterfield winger Gboly Ariyibi for the 2016/17 season.

Born in Arlington, Virginia in the United States, Ariyibi started his youth career at English club Southampton in 2005 after being spotted playing for Oxford youth side Quarry Rovers. He came through the youth ranks with future first team regulars Luke Shaw and James Ward-Prowse. Ariyibi progressed through to the Under 21’s team. He was named as one of Southampton’s home-grown Under 21 players for the 2012–13 season in the official squad list.

League One rivals Sheffield United and Scottish giants Rangers are all believed to be keen on the 21-year-old – who is a US youth international.

City Communications are happy to be able to support Chesterfield in this way, having already been instrumental in ensuring that the regular Football Club’s community podcasts are broadcast on iTunes every month!
