Chesterfield will unveil their new manager Paul Cook at a press conference later today. Cook has left npower League Two counterparts Accrington to take over at the Proact Stadium, after he signed a two-and-a-half-year contract.

The Spireites were given the go-ahead to speak to 45-year-old Cook after agreeing a compensation package with Stanley for the former Sligo Rovers boss.

Chesterfield have been without a manager since John Sheridan was relieved of his duties in August. Caretaker manager Tommy Wright and coach Mark Crossley will remain part of the backroom team under Cook.

In a statement released by the Spireites, Cook said: "I'm delighted to be the new Chesterfield manager. It's a fantastic club with a great infrastructure and I'm really looking forward to the challenge."
