BREAKING: Spireites sign defender ahead of Eastleigh clash

Chesterfield have announced the signing of central defender Fraser Kerr from Torquay United.


The 28-year-old has been handed a contract until the end of the season.


Kerr started his career in the youth set-up at Motherwell before going South of the border to join Birmingham City. He signed first team forms but didn't make a first team appearance for Blues and returned to Motherwell on loan for the 2012/13 season. When his contract at Birmingham expired, the defender joined the Scottish Premiership side on a permanent basis before spending time at Cowdenbeath and Stenhousemuir.


The Scotsman returned to English football when he penned a one-year deal with National League club Gateshead. During his time at the International Stadium he made 64 appearances and scored 4 goals from central defence and attracted the attention of fellow National League club Hartlepool United who signed Kerr for a nominal fee. After just over a year with Pools the defender was released and then signed by Torquay United in the Summer.


Speaking on the club website about his latest addition, Spireites boss James Rowe said:

“I’ve followed Fraser for quite some time and his attributes fit into the way we are trying to move forward.


“He is a great addition to our squad and strengthens us for what will be a busy fixture schedule until the end of the season.”
