Lester, who scored 85 goals in 197 league appearances for Chesterfield, will join various other popular figures from the past including Tom Fenoughty and Keith Havenhand in the SBK Computers Spires Restaurant at the Proact on Friday, July 28 (7pm).

The event is being organised by the Community Trust and fans can bid for the opportunity to have Jack sat at their table. Bids can be emailed to [email protected] until 5pm on Thursday. All proceeds from the auction will go to the Community Trust, helping them to fund various community projects.

The history of the club will be recounted on the night, based around some of the characters involved.
