Chesterfield move right for career - Leam Richardson
New Chesterfield assistant manager Leam Richardson has called his decision to join the club "a good move".
The 33-year-old left the manager's position at Accrington Stanley to replace Tommy Wright as Paul Cook's assistant at the Spireites.
Richardson previously worked under Cook at Stanley.
"I think career-minded people and people in football will realise that this is a very good move," he told BBC Radio Sheffield.
"Certain people will question it but I see the bigger picture because I'm only 33 and I have a lot to learn.
"Once the question got asked and I sat down with my family it quickly became apparent that this would be an exciting move.
"You can see that this is a club going in the right direction and it needs to get there quickly."
His exit brings to a close to an eight-year association with the club as both a player and coach.
"I'll take some fantastic memories from Accrington and it'll live with me forever," he added.
"If I dropped out of football tomorrow then it'd still be a big part of my life.
"I've met some fantastic people there that I consider as friends rather than colleagues. When you move on you quickly realise how close you are to certain people."
