Departing Spireites: Boden & Buchanan

We take a look at the players who will be departing the Technique Stadium when their contracts expire, starting with experienced duo Scott Boden and David Buchanan…

Scott Boden

Age: 31

Position: Striker

Appearances: 58 (second stint)

Goals: 23

Time at Chesterfield: Boden has had two stints as a Spireite, first joining the club back in 2008. In six years, he scored 15 goals in 104 league appearances. He left in 2013 and spent several years in and around the National League, before re-joining the club in 2019 after he was signed by John Sheridan. Boden played a vital role in keeping the club in the National League when he returned to the club, scoring some vital goals that earned the Spireites enough points to stay in the division. He joined Torquay United on loan in February.

Memorable moment: In February 2019, Boden made his second debut for the club, where he converted a late penalty at home to Halifax Town to clinch all three points for the Spireites.
