AFC Bournemouth legend Steve Fletcher has rejected a contract offer from Chesterfield and has confirmed he will leave the League Two side over the summer.

Big Fletch left the Cherries a year ago and joined Chesterfield on a one year deal, making 39 appearances (15 as sub) scoring 5 goals.

Fletch told the Chesterfield Official site…

‘I am disappointed to leave because I love Chesterfield and the welcome I have received.

‘Manager Lee Richardson has been like a breath of fresh air for me and I am convinced he will bring success to the club. It has been a difficult decision but in the end the distance away from my family is just too far.

‘I want to continue my football career but within a reasonable travelling distance of my family home.

‘I will always remember my time at Chesterfield.’
