Marc Richards impressed on his first appearance as a Spireites, scoring two goals in a 5-1 win over Matlock Town.

The striker came on as a second half substitute and wasted little time in introduction himself to the Chesterfield fans.

His first goal was a 30-yard free-kick, which he bent past the helpless 'keeper, and his second came from the penalty spot after he was fouled racing towards the Matlock goal.

Although the pre-season campaign is only two games old, he is confident he and his team mates can take their good form into the new season.

He said: "“It’s early days at the moment, it’s the first 45 minutes and if we keep working hard as we are in pre-season training and getting results in games and good performances, hopefully we’ll take that into the start of the season.”

The 30-year-old was pleased with his first run-out as a Spireite and was pleased to open his account.

When asked about his free-kick he said: "The 'keeper gave me a lot of room to be fair.

"I managed to catch it sweet enough for it to go in the bottom corner.

"Obviously I was delighted to see it go in."

Richards also revealed that although he was enjoying pre-season, he, along with the other lads, can't wait for the league season to begin.

"These game (pre-season) are to get our fitness up", said Richards.

"We just can't wait to get the season started and hopefully get a win down at Wimbledon."
