Former Yeovil Town midfielder Tom Whelan has left Chesterfield by ‘mutal consent’ in something of a surprise move.
Whelan who played little over half a dozen games for the Glovers in 2019/20 moved onto W*ymouth before earning a move to big spending Chesterfield in December of 2020.
He scored the all important 2nd goal of a 3-0 win by Chesterfield over Yeovil when the sides met in March and was expected to be a key part of the Spireites promotion push this campaign.
Whelan took to social media to thank his former employers, it’ll be interesting to see where he ends up for this coming season.
Chesterfield boss, James Rowe has said how he couldnt guarantee Whelan enough games and that he would be better off finding more opportunities elsewhere.
Rowe told the Derbyshire Times: “Tom did well when he first came in but with the emergence of (another former Glover) Jack Clarke at the end of last season, we obviously can’t have three ‘number 10s’ in the building for one position, or potentially two if we play with two 10s, so Tom’s game time was going to be limited”
Thank you to everyone at the club from the fans, players and staff. Wish you all the best. Take care ⚽️💙 https://t.co/c3uPz3lRch
