The Chesterfield FC shadow squad get their pre-season programme underway tomorrow as they travel to Rossington Main's Oxford Street Ground in Doncaster (DN11 0TE), with away fans welcome to attend.
Head of academy recruitment Liam Sutcliffe is looking forward to getting the season started: "The summer's flown by and now it's time to get back on the pitch to play some football.
"I feel we've got some really good lads in the shadow squad this year and during training you can get an idea of what's what. That said, there's nothing like games to see what talent there is and how best to develop it, and we start with that on Wednesday night."
