THE Spireites have made their first signing of the summer with the news that former Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Richard O’Donnell is joining Chesterfield on a one year deal after being released this week by the Owls.
The 23 year old, who is a product of the Owls Academy, has made 20 appearances for the Owls and has had several loan spells including Oldham Athletic, Grimsby Town, and Macclesfield Town.
The deadline for Spireites’ season tickets for 2012-13 at the best possible prices is this Friday May 18.
This early bird discount deadline applies both to existing season ticket holders and fans wanting a season ticket for the first time. To ease with supporters’ timescales, there is late night opening on Thursday May 17 until 6.30pm
After the deadline a £20 deposit will reserve a seat for an existing season ticket holder until mid June, when all seats then become available for sale. Chesterfield FC has been awarded ‘The Football League Family Excellence Award’ for the 2011-12 Season. Chief Executive Chris Turner said: “We are delighted to receive this recognition from the Football League.”
