Goalkeeper Tommy Lee has been crowned Chesterfield FC Player of the Year for the second season on the trot.

The 25-year-old is out of contract this summer but the step up to League One may be enough to persuade him to stay.

Drew Talbot, who won the Star and Green ’Un Chesterfield Player of the Year award, added to that by being named Players’ Player of the Year.

The former Owls man added to his value when he switched from right midfield to right-back for much of the final third of the season as injuries kicked in.

Deane Smalley, one of four men to reach double figures in the goal stakes, won Goal of the Season for his first-time finish in the win at Bradford City. The goal was made by a defence-splitting pass from Kieran Djilali.

Both men have been on loan at Chesterfield this season and, Smalley in particular will be a massively popular signing if he joins the club this summer from parent club Oldham who have offered him a new deal.

Manager John Sheridan, set to sign a new five-year deal, has said he’ll reveal his retained list towards the end of this week.

Most speculation surrounds Lee, Craig Davies and Jack Lester. None have re-signed for the Spireites, though it’s anticipated Lester will remain for a fifth season.

Davies is expected to move on.

Two players who’ve given massive service to the club, Ian Breckin and Derek Niven, may not be offered new deals whileAaron Downes and Jamie Lowry, who’ve both missed just about all of this season with injuries, could be given time to prove their fitness.

Fans will be hoping Scott Griffiths signs permanently but he still has two years of a deal remaining at Peterborough United.

Dean Morgan, Mark Allott and Dean Holden are all expected to be at the B2net next season.
