Loan Spell Helps Youngster's Progress

Young defender Jack Broadhead believes his spell on loan at non-league Buxton has helped him develop his game.

The 19-year-old centre-back, who has returned to the Proact following a three-month stint with the Bucks, said: "I really enjoyed it and I'm grateful to Buxton for taking a chance on me. I felt as though as I repaid them well by putting in some good performances. 

"Unfortunately, I missed a few games through injury but I then managed to get back in and got more than a few games under my belt. Playing at that level helps you mature and brings on your football quite a bit."

Broadhead's progress during his time at Buxton was monitored by the Spireites with manager Paul Cook making several personal checks on the youngster.

"He came to watch me a few times and said he was happy with me so that's all I could really ask for," said Broadhead. 

After making his first-team debut as a substitute in last season's FA Cup game against Hartlepool, Broadhead is now looking to press his claims for inclusion in the senior squad. He added: "I'm just going to knuckle down and work hard. I love playing football and I just want to play."
