Morsy absent as Chesterfield seal promotion
Sam Morsy will be playing football in the English third tier next season after Chesterfield sealed their promotion to League One with a 0-2 victory at Burton on Sunday.
Jay O’Shea netted twice as the Spireites went to the top of League Two on goal difference, moving five points clear of fourth placed Fleetwood in order to be assured of their position as one of the league’s three-promoted clubs.
The 22-year-old midfield enforcer was suspended for the game after he was sent off against Exeter, though he will pick up his second promotion medal from League Two after also going up last year with Port Vale.
Though last summer saw him drop back into the fourth division following an acrimonious exit from the Staffordshire club, Morsy will certainly be a significant part of Paul Cook’s plans as he prepares his team for life in League One after making 39 appearances in this successful season.
Chesterfield will now go in search of the league title as they host Fleetwood on the final day of the season next Saturday, the last match of Morsy’s ban.
He will be present at the Proact Stadium however in the hope of receiving his winner’s medal, just reward for a campaign in which the tenacious midfielder has repeatedly shown his vast talent and huge potential.
