The 21-year-old midfielder left QPR to switch to Broadhall Way on the final day of the January transfer window. Less than 48 hours later, he played midfielder for Dino Maamria’s team in a 1-0 win. against Yeovil Town in League Two. Alex Revell scored the winning goal against the Glovers but Chair was the star of the show.

It’s a pleasure to have him. “If this is his last match, but he is convinced that it will not be the case, we must appreciate him. Our fans have enjoyed him, our players have enjoyed him and I am sure he will be a regular for next season Championship . ”
