Will Evans has called it a privilege to lead Chesterfield on the pitch for boss Martin Allen.

The centre-half joins Robbie Weir and Drew Talbot in having been asked to wear the armband this season by Allen.

“It was a proud moment obviously,” said the 27-year-old, who captained Aldershot for a few games last season.

“The situation we were in at the time, things weren’t really going our way and the gaffer was looking for someone to lead the lads on the field and he chose me.

“It’s a privilege for me, obviously he trusts me.”
