Chesterfield have confirmed that they have reached an agreement to terminate Jack Lester’s contract as manager by mutual consent. Here are five potential replacements –
Russell Slade – He has recently left Grimsby Town but could be the perfect replacement for Jack Lester. Slade has vast amount of experience as a manager. He has won League One manager of the year twice, once for Yeovil and once with Leyton Orient where he guided them to 3rd and took them to Wembley. With his impressive CV, will Slade be able to bring Chesterfield back to the Football League?
Shaun Derry – The 40-year-old has managed Notts County and Cambridge United. Despite looking destined for relegation, Derry secured Notts’s League One status with six wins from the last nine games, a draw on last day of season kept County up by three points. Maybe Derry could reproduce his magic at Chesterfield and keep them in League Two?
Michael Brown – Although, his managerial spell at Port Vale didn’t work out, maybe he deserves a second chance in management. He would get his side playing for the badge as Brown was criticised throughout his career for his heavy tackling and aggression, also he was known for his passion, which could keep them in League Two.
Robbie Neilson – The Scottish gaffer was sacked by League One side MK Dons earlier this season but Chesterfield would be a brilliant opportunity for him to get back into the game. He did a impressive job with Hearts in Scotland and he’s shown that he deserves another chance.
Alan Stubbs – He has expressed his interest in getting back into management. He was sacked by Rotherham United last season after a poor start to the season but did a great job with Hibernian in Scotland. He deserves another chance to prove his worth in England.
