CHESTERFIELD keeper Tommy Lee has become the first ever man to win the club’s Player of the Year award for three consecutive seasons.

The 26-year-old former Manchester United youngster joined the club from Macclesfield Town in 2008 and has since played 151 league games, one more than 1997 FA Cup semi-final favourite Billy Mercer.

Mick Leonard, whose last game for the club was in 1994, was the last keeper to have played more games for the club.

Lee also took the Young Supporters’ Award as well as the Players’ Player of the Year gong. He was also recently awarded the Star and Green ’Un’s Chesterfield Player of the Year Award.

Although he has another year on his contract, many supporters expect the keeper to be the subject of summer offers, though manager John Sheridan has said he’s received no bids.

Danny Whitaker’s strike in the away win at Hartlepool United was voted Goal of the Season.
