After retirement as a player in 1989, Wylde graduated from the University of Salford with a degree in physiotherapy and stayed with the Edgeley Park outfit for over 25 years before linking up with Chesterfield.

The local lad played over 500 games with Chesterfield, which included being part of the 1997 FA Cup side that reached the semi-finals. He scored a 119th minute extra-time equaliser in the semi-final at Old Trafford against Middlesbrough before the club lost the replay 3-0. 

Hewitt also spent a season at Doncaster Rovers in 1993, but re-joined the Spireites a year later and stayed until his playing retirement in 2002.
