Experienced keeper joins Spireites

Experienced keeper Kyle Letheren became the latest addition to John Pemberton’s squad on Friday afternoon.

The 32-year-old, who was a free agent after leaving Salford City at the end of last season, is pleased to have put pen to paper.

He said: “I’m delighted to be here and I can’t wait to get going. Hopefully we can be at the right end of the table.”

Manager John Pemberton said: “We monitored him last year and we’re delighted to have him.

“Kyle has valuable experience and we feel that he’s one for the next few years. He played in 22 games last season and kept 11 clean sheets.”

Letheren started his career at Swansea City before moving to Barnsley. His career has taken him to various clubs including Plymouth Argyle, Blackpool and York City. He has also had stints north of the border with Kilmarnock and Dundee.

Kyle’s father Glan, who was also a keeper, played for Chesterfield under Arthur Cox in the late 1970s.
