With Chesterfield hosting Peterborough United this weekend we look at a player who has donned the blue of both clubs.
Scott Griffiths was actually loaned out by Peterborough to Chesterfield for two spells between 2010 and 2012. In these two separate loan spells Griffiths managed to appear over 30 times for the Spireites helping Chesterfield win the League Two title in 2011.
Griffiths worked his way up through the non-league system beginning at Aveley before signing for Dagenham and Redbridge were he would spent six seasons. During his time at Dagenham and Redbridge Griffiths was a part of the side that earned promotion to the Football League in 2006/07. He also managed to earn two caps for the England ‘C’ team in this time.
His performances for the Daggers earned him a transfer to Peterborough United however he was soon loaned out to multiple clubs including Crawley Town, Rotherham United and Plymouth Argyle.
However, his first loan move was to Chesterfield, initially for three months but he ended up returning for the back end of the 2010/11 season. Playing at full-back Griffiths helped the Spireites to the League Two title appearing 28 times in the league and being involved in an impressive ten-game unbeaten run.
The move was never made a permanent one and Peterborough continued to loan Griffiths out before he signed for then Conference side Luton Town. Griffiths managed to get first team football once again at Luton appearing 105 times so far for the club.
Griffiths was an ever-present in Luton’s Conference National title winning season in 2013/14 and he was a part of the defence which managed a club record 23 clean sheets. He continued to appear for the Hatters in League Two in 2014-15 but has since fallen out of favour at Kenilworth Road.
The full-back is now on loan at Conference National side Woking after completing a move at the end of January. However his spell at Woking didn’t get off to the best of starts scoring an own goal in a 2-2 draw with Barrow.
Even though his period at the Proact was brief Griffiths will be remembered for being an important player in a Chesterfield side which managed to win the League Two title five points clear of their nearest challenger and earning the side promotion back to League One.
