Kellett: "I can’t wait to get going!"

New Spireites signing, Andy Kellett, says that when manager Gary Caldwell came calling for his services, his move to Chesterfield was one that he couldn’t turn down.

Kellett joined the club on a season-long deal from Wigan Athletic this morning and has already experienced the Proact in his career.

“I played against Chesterfield in the season before last and they played some great football,” he told iFollow.

“I also know the manager from Wigan and I jumped when he came calling because of what we did last year at Wigan.

“I’ve known about it (Chesterfield’s interest) for a couple of weeks, but I’ve recently been coming back from an injury I suffered last season, so that held it back a little bit, now I’m here I can’t wait to get going!”

One of the many reasons Caldwell wanted to bring one time Manchester United man to the Proact was his versatility, so has Kellett been given any indication of where he’ll play?

“We’ve not really spoken about it too much, it’s a case of me coming here to play games,” he explained.

“I can play at left back or left wing-back and the manager has even played me in a number 10 role for Wigan! Hopefully I can benefit the team wherever I play.

Kellett is contention to make his Spireites debut in the away fixture with Newport County tomorrow, before a possible home debut against either Bradford City on Tuesday or when Coventry City come to town next Saturday.

And playing at the Proact once again is something the defender is relishing.

He added: “It’s a lovely pitch and nice stadium, I can’t wait to bring something to the team.”
