The 37-year-old striker will make his final appearance for the Blues on Saturday after the club decided against offering him a new contract.

With their play-off hopes extinguished last weekend, the Spireites' last game of the season against the Grecians has nothing riding on it.

Despite that, manager Paul Cook wants the supporters to pack out the Proact Stadium to bid farewell to someone he insists is a club legend.

Cook said: "Unfortunately we can't look forward to going up, but we can all look forward to a very special day for Jack Lester.

"He will captain the side and will lead us out and I want the ground to be full. I appeal to everyone to fill the ground and make the occasion and the ovation special as he's been a special player for this club.

"I want it to be a special day for Jack Lester and I want all the focus to be on him and his achievements. It will be his day.

"He is a true club legend and I'm sure these supporters will give him the ovation he deserves."

Lester, who joined Chesterfield on a free transfer from Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2007, has scored 92 goals in 218 appearances for the Spireites.

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
