Former Favourite Rejoins Spireites

Former Spireites striker Tony Lormor has rejoined the club, taking on the role of kit man.

Lormor, who scored 35 goals in 113 appearances for Chesterfield in the 1990s, is pleased to have been given the opportunity to return to the club.

He said: "Chris Turner got in touch to ask me whether I fancied the job and I jumped at the chance. It's nice to be back and I'm really looking forward to it." 

Chief executive Turner said: "It's great to have a former player involved in this role. Tony is passionate about the club and I'm sure he's going to be a great asset to Paul Cook and his staff."

Lormor started his career at Newcastle United and played for several clubs before joining the Spireites from Peterborough United in 1994.

He was a popular figure in a three-year spell at Saltergate, opening the scoring in the 2-0 victory over Bury in the 1995 Third Division play-off final at Wembley.

After scoring 35 goals in 113 appearances, Lormor joined Preston North End in a part-exchange deal which saw David Reeves move in the opposite direction.

Spells at Notts County (loan), Mansfield Town, Hartlepool United and Shrewbury Town (loan) followed before he ended his playing career in non-league football.

Lormor gave up a job in sales at Derby County in order to take up his new role.
