On the eve of the new season, it has been announced that Chesterfield's number 14 shirt has been retired in honour of Jack Lester.

Lester wore the shirt until his retirement at the end of last season and the number has not been allocated to another player in the squad for the forthcoming campaign.

Spireites chief executive Chris Turner has now confirmed that the shirt number has been retired indefinitely. He said: "I spoke to Paul Cook and we just felt that it was quite appropriate to not have anyone wearing the shirt, as a mark of respect for Jack."

Lester earned legendary status among Chesterfield fans during a six-year spell at the club. He scored twice on his farewell appearance against Exeter City on the last day of the season to take his tally for the Spireites to 94 goals.

The 37-year-old is now observing coaching methods around the world after gaining his UEFA B coaching badge and qualifications in psychology.
