Former Yeovil Town striker Joe Quigley has spoken as a Chesterfield player for the first time confirming that promotion was the aim for league leaders, but also that the deal taking him from Huish Park to the Technique Arena had been ongoing for a little while.

Speaking to Chesterfield YouTube channel, in an interview recorded of Friday, he said:

“I spoke to the gaffer (James Rowe) a couple of days ago, and obviously I knew about it last week.

“So, it’s been a bit long trying to get it done, but now it’s done, I’m delighted to be here.”

The interview went on to speak about how much he was looking forward to playing for his new club and how he knew Jack Clarke from their time together at Yeovil last season.

Quigley missed the FA Trophy exit at the hands of lower league Needham Market due to “illness”.

Glovers’ boss Darren Sarll said not ten hours before Quigley’s move was announced that no offers had been accepted for any of the Glovers players during the month of January, so maybe the timelines don’t quite add up somewhere.

Following the 2-1 to Wrexham on SaturdaySarll said of the departing Quigley: “That’s the fourth forward I’ve sold (Hippolyte – Scunthorpe, Duffus – Morecambe and Lloyd – QPR) we obviously improve people, we try and improve people with our coaching but yeah, I’d have liked him today.”

Quigley scored 18 goals in 53 league appearances for the Glovers, including seven this season.

Yeovil will travel to Derbyshire to play Chesterfield on Saturday, February 26.
