Chesterfield have spoken of ‘an intensive interview process’ as the club look to appoint their new manager.
Former Spireites player Lee Turnbull, who was announced on Monday as taking up a football advisory role with the National League club, was part of the interview panel yesterday. So too was former England international Kevin Davies, himself a notable one-time Town player.
The four board members on the panel included chief executive John Croot, who gave an update to the club website about the hunt for John Pemberton’s successor.
He said: “It has been an intensive interview process and we were impressed with the quality of the candidates after narrowing down our search from an extensive list of applicants.
“I would like to thank Kevin and Lee for their valued input. Advice from other respected former Chesterfield players and managers has also been taken on board as part of the selection process.
“We are hopeful that the new manager will be in place ahead of Saturday’s game at Weymouth.”
