Lee Reaches 300 Appearance Milestone

3 January 2016

Spireites goalkeeper Tommy Lee reached another milestone on Saturday as he appeared in his 300th league game for Chesterfield.

The long-time club number one is currently on 17th on the all-time league appearance list for Chesterfield, and Saturday's 7-1 Shrewsbury Town win moved him a game closer to the next man on the list, legend Herbert Munday who has 314 league appearances to his name.

Lee arrived at the club - then playing at Saltergate - in 2008 and has gone on to win League Two twice and the Johnstone's Paint Trophy with the Spireites.

Lee expressed his delight at reaching another landmark: "It's an honour, when I signed for the club if you'd have said I could play 300 games for the club I'd not have believed you.

"You need a little bit of luck to stay injury free and stay in the team by performing to a level, but I've always enjoyed it here and long may that continue."

With a new manager in place in time for the new year, Lee says that he and his team-mates are all concentrated on improving their league form.

"Our job is took look up now," he said. "The last couple of months haven't been the best, but we got a good result against Coventry and an even better one against Shrewsbury so we're moving in the right direction."

The 'keeper's manager was also keen to pay tribute to his man, Danny Wilson saying that he's even better than he previosuly realised.

"It's a great achievement for Tommy, he's been very loyal to the club. Sometimes before you work with people you don't appreciate how good some players are.

"Tommy's a great professional and I'm sure there will be many more appearance to come for him."
