Tom Denton joins Chesterfield

Tuesday Sep 11, 2018


The Club can confirm that striker Tom Denton has joined National League side Chesterfield, for an undisclosed fee.

Denton joined the Reds in May 2018 on a one year deal ahead of the new 2018/19 season, he was Billy Heath’s first summer signing.

Tom fired six goals in the opening nine games of the National League North campaign.

Manager Billy Heath:

“We’re extremely disappointed to let Tom go, we know what he brings to the table, know what he offers. It’s a loss for us but when an opportunity like this comes for a player, I’ve always stood by the fact that we have to let the player take it.”

“Tom is 29 now, it’s a chance for him to join a full time club and what many would consider a football league side. It’s his last chance to be involved in full time football.”

“Tom wanted to speak to them and the move back into the National League also attracted him, he’d be moving into a higher level and he was keen to do that.”

“All at the club wish Tom all the best, he has been fantastic at all three clubs I’ve had him, we’ve been good for each other and we wish him well.”

“We won’t rush into anything; we have fantastic forwards at the football club all with bags of quality and we will take our time. Yes it’s disappointing but you look at where we are after nine games, we’re in a great position in the league and we want to continue that. The squad is strong and remains strong and we’ll focus firmly on Chorley at the weekend.”

All at ATFC wish Tom all the best and thank him for his contribution to the Reds.
