Zavon Hines Joins Chesterfield
Former Burnley and Bradford City winger Zavon Hines has left Maidstone United to sign for Sky Bet League Two side Chesterfield in a contract until the end of the season. Hines made just thirteen appearances for the Clarets most of which were from the bench, he made only two starts in the League Cup. His last appearances was at Southampton in February 2012, when he came on as a substitute for Ben Mee with a quarter of an hour remaining and Burnley 2-0 down.
After just one season the Clarets exercised an option in July 2012 to confirm they were releasing the player and just hours after Zavon Hines himself had done a Sky interview claiming to be a free agent.He went on to play for Bradford City and Dagenham & Redbridge but his career was curtailed by a serious knee injury whilst at the Daggers.
Hines spent last season without a club before joining Southend United in January but he made just five substitute appearances and this season has been with Maidstone United for whom he has scored seven times in 22 appearances.
Chesterfield are just outside the relegation zone in Sky Bet League Two and speaking about his latest signing Chesterfield manager Jack Lester said, “He’s an exciting player who can play on eiher wing or down the middle and he gives you energy.”
Speaking about the move Zavon Hines said, “It’s all happened very quickly, but I’m happy to be back in the Football League. Hopefully I can repay the faith that the manager has shown in me.”
