The 34-year-old collected his fifth booking of the season against Yeovil Town on Saturday, triggering a one-match ban.

The midfielder was booked in the 88th minute of the game for a foul on the halfway line.

The Yeovil clash was the 23rd fixture of the season, the cut-off point for five yellows, meaning Weston would have escaped the ban had he not gone into the referee’s book.

Curtis Weston picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Yeovil Town on Saturday.

He will be back available for the home encounter against Sutton United on Tuesday, March 16.

‘Westy’ has played a big part in Chesterfield rise up the National League table and has started every league under boss James Rowe.

He was rewarded for his consistent performances with a new one-year contract extension last month.

The popular character is now contracted to the club until the summer of 2022. He was set to become a free agent at the end of this season.

“I’m absolutely delighted to have signed a new deal with the club and very much looking forward to working hard to get the club back in the Football League, where we belong,” Weston said last month.

He has also been named club captain and has taken on an ambassadorial role with the Spireites community trust.

Chief executive, John Croot, said: “Curtis has always been keen to get involved and he is always one of the first ones the trust calls if they want everything and he is always really receptive to it.”
