Leam Richardson has resigned from his role as manager of Accrington to take up the vacant assistant seat at Chesterfield.

The 33 year old has unfortunately disappointed everybody after a formal approach was made by Chesterfield for his services, and he indicated he would like to move on so a deal was agreed between the two clubs.

Fair play to Leam, he did a good job for us in the circumstances and he’s ambitious and Chesterfield narrowly missed out on a play off place this season, but it would’ve been nice if he’d have decided to build on this season and put us in the position Chesterfield found themselves this year.

The club obviously thank him for his efforts in the numerous roles he has played whilst at Stanley over the last 8 years.

Paul Stephenson and first team coach Paul Lodge remain at the club and will take charge of first team matters until a new manager is appointment.

Leam now joins up with former gaffer Paul Cook in the assistant manager role, and he will clearly learn a lot and develop further because of the experience.
