Chesterfield have been boosted by the news that highly-rated goalkeeper Tommy Lee has signed a new contract.

The 25-year-old former Manchester United trainee had been linked with a move away from the npower League Two champions but has signed a two-year deal to keep him at the b2net Stadium until June 2013.

"Being with Chesterfield has proved to be the high-spot of my career so I am delighted that my future is now settled for the next couple of years," said Lee, the club's player of the year and the only ever-present for John Sheridan's side this season.

"We have a great bunch of lads here already and I know the manager has plans to add to that for next season."


Meanwhile, defender Dean Holden has also signed a new one-year deal with the Spireites.

He said: "This has been a great move for me, not only winning a championship medal but now a new contract, and I am looking forward to next season in League One. Happy times!"
