AARON Downes developed his football skills at the Australian Institute of Sport before leaving his native country to sign for Chesterfield.
His progress with the Spireites was so impressive that Aaron was soon named club captain but much of his career at Chesterfield was interrupted by two nasty knee injuries.
He ended the season before last with a loan spell at Bristol Rovers and the Australian Under-23 international left Chesterfield in the summer, ending an eight-year association with the club.
Aaron signed a one-year deal at Plainmoor in July 2012 after impressing United manager Martin Ling while playing a trial match for Yeovil Town.
His first campaign in Yellow was a huge success, as Aaron was rewarded with the Player of the Season trophy and a new contract to stay at the club.
