Nelson: "I'm glad to get it over the line."

New signing Sid Nelson admits that his move to the Proact happened very quickly and that he now can’t wait to get started.

Nelson became the Spireites’ first signing of the January transfer window yesterday, signing on-loan from Millwall until the end of the season and he was later joined at the club by midfielders Josh Kay and Zavon Hines.

Speaking exclusively to iFollow, Nelson said: “It’s a pleasure to be here and I’m glad to get it over the line.

“I got a call from my agent and the manager at Millwall [Neil Harris] and I obviously had a chat with the gaffer [Jack Lester] here and it all just feel into place really. It was a quick turnaround and now I can’t wait to get things going.”

The centre half spent time on loan at fellow Sky Bet League Two side Yeovil Town earlier this season, playing against the Spireites in the Glovers’ 3-2 win at the Proact on September 26.

And despite Town not coming out on top on that occasion, he saw enough that night to suggest the team can soon climb up the League Two table.

“I know the team’s a talented team,” he recalled. “I’ve played against a couple of the boys here before; the position doesn’t justify their ability.

“I’m sure with the new signings coming in now and we’re all singing off the same sheet, we can go and get some points together and move up the table.

“It’s about giving 100% in this league, if everyone does that you’ve always got a chance, you can beat anyone in this league.”

Nelson captained Millwall when he was 19 and said he gives 100% for whoever he plays for.

The former Newport County man is set to be included in the Spireites' squad when they visit Accrington Stanley tomorrow (3pm).
