Sad news reaches us that former Spireites skipper Bill Green has passed away at the age of 66.
Bill joined Chesterfield from Peterborough United in 1979 and lifted the Anglo-Scottish Cup as captain two years later.
A commanding central defender, he made 160 appearances for the Spireites before moving to Doncaster Rovers in 1983.
After a spell as manager of Scunthorpe United, Bill became a much respected player recruitment figure at clubs including Sheffield Wednesday, Wigan Athletic and Derby County.
A native of Newcastle, Bill had latterly been working for Southampton as their senior recruitment officer.
Our sincere condolences go to Bill's family and friends.
