Whelan delighted to rejoin Spireites

Tom Whelan has spoken of his delight after rejoining the Spireites from Eastleigh for an undisclosed fee.

After completing his return to the club, the 25-year-old midfielder said: “I was desperate to come back.

“I know the place and I know the lads so I’m really happy to get back. I enjoyed my time here and I didn’t really want to leave.”

Whelan was a popular figure during his first spell at the club, scoring five goals in 27 appearances before leaving last summer.

Assistant-manager Danny Webb said: “He’s a very, very good player who will be a great addition. He’s got great technical ability and it’s great to have him back.”
