Recently installed Chesterfield boss Jack Lester is happy with how his backroom staff have settled in at the Proact.

The manager’s unveiling last month was delayed by 48 hours because he wanted to come in with his number two secured and in place.

Nicky Eaden, formerly Under 23s boss at Coventry City, was named Lester’s assistant.

The 44-year-old has a talent for developing players, according to his new boss.

And the duo are backed up by the experienced Tommy Wright, who made a return to the club having previously been a popular assistant manager and caretaker.

Wright was John Sheridan’s assistant at both Oldham and Chesterfield before a successful spell at Barnsley – albeit a spell that ended in controversy after a national newspaper’s allegations over a payment made by undercover reporters.

“I’ve known them a little bit anyway and worked with Tommy as a player,” said Lester, who has lost two and won one of his opening three games as Town manager.

“Tommy has done some brilliant things with Barnsley, vastly experienced, knows the league really well, knows a player. I’m really delighted he chose to come to us because I’m sure he had one or two options.

“There’s some good experience in there, I think the blend is really good.

“They’re very good at their jobs, which is important.”

Lester, who has stated on numerous occasions that it will take time to embed his ideas on the squad, is satisfied with the way in which the players have taken to their new management team.

“I think the atmosphere in the club is excellent,” he said.

“I think everybody is clear in what we want and what is accepted.

“The players have bought into it, their willingness to work in training has been great.

“It’s small steps but we’re making them.”
