Former Chesterfield player and manager Jack Lester has returned to football, by taking up a new role as head of Sheffield United's academy system
Lester spent six years as a player with the Spireites, scoring 85 league goals and cementing his legacy as one of the best strikers in the club's history.
He then managed the club for a brief spell in the 2017/18 season but was unable to steer the Spireites away from relegation to the national league.
