CHESTER­FIELD man­ager Gary Cald­well is thrilled to have brought North­ern Ir­ish mid­fielder Rob­bie Weir to the Proact Sta­dium.

Ex-Ley­ton Ori­ent cap­tain Weir, 28, was re­leased fol­low­ing the O’s rel­e­ga­tion from the EFL.

Scots­man Cald­well, 35, played against Weir in his Wi­gan days.

“I jumped at the chance to look at Rob­bie on trial af­ter com­ing up against him when he was at Bur­ton,” said Cald­well.

“He was al­ways some­one who impressed me with his qual­ity. Since he’s been here, he’s been su­perb and we’re de­lighted to have got him.”
