Hird Handed One-game Suspension

13 May 2016

Player of the Year Sam Hird will miss the first game of the 2016/17 campaign after his red card against Bradford City on the last day of the season last Sunday.

Hird was given a straight red card at Valley Parade after fouling Jamie Proctor and denying a goalscoring opportunity.

The suspension will see Hird banned for one first-team match, almost certainly the first game of the Sky Bet League 1 season on Saturday, August 6. 

The centre back was the big winner at Tuesday night's Player of the Year Awards, winning the fan vote for the Spireites' player of the season as well as similar sponsors' awards from NAPIT, True Blue Travel and SBK Computers.
