Chesterfield assistant manager Leam Richardson has been rewarded with a new two-year deal to remain at Proact Stadium.

Richardson re-joined Paul Cook, who he worked under at Accrington Stanley, from the Crown Ground in the summer of 2013.

He had a year left on his current deal but was handed fresh terms following the Spireites’ League Two title success.

“The club’s ambition matches mine and I am keen to help Paul Cook achieve further success following our League Two title win,” said Richardson.

“With the tremendous backing we have received from the board, I can only see us going forward as a club and it’s great to be a part of that.”

Chief executive Chris Turner points out that Richardson’s new deal ties him to the club for the same period as Cook.

He said: “We have a great management team in place and we felt it was the correct decision to ensure that Paul and Leam were both secured on contracts until 2016.”
