The Chesterfield youth team started off the year with a great 4-0 league win away at Burton Albion.
The young Spireites returned to Derbyshire victorious thanks to goals from Jordan Walshaw, Jake Beesley, Martell Daswell and Laurence Maguire.
Youth team manager Mark Smith fed back on another successful Saturday.
“We were good for the first 45 minutes,” said Smith. “It was very pleasing. We talked about the break that interrupts your training schedules but we played the right kind of football. We looked sharp, looked quick, looked bright and strong and came in at half time with a 2-0 lead.
“We came off it in the second half I thought. Probably tiredness might have kicked in a little bit but we managed to nick a couple more goals in that half and come away with a clean sheet, which was encouraging.”
Smith believes his side were good value for their two goal half time lead and made his season ambitions for the team very clear.
He said: “We fully deserved our 2-0 lead and could have had more but again, if I’m being ultra-critical, that’s one of the things we’ve got to improve on, killing people off a lot quicker, because we do make chances and create opportunities and sometimes we’re a bit sloppy and a bit casual in our finishing so we’ll work on it.
“We were good at the back, through midfield and up at the front. We were excellent, and that’s all you can ask for really. With the interruptions in training and then having to pick it back up it’s important we built on the first half of the season because it’s given us a good platform to push off from.
“We’ve already put the objectives in place and we want to win the league and beat Leicester in the cup. We want to get as far as we can in the cup competitions.”
