YOUTH TEAM: Donny Challenge Awaits

19 February 2016

After a week off the young Spireites go hunting for another win as they travel to Doncaster Rovers on Saturday morning (11am kick-off).

The games will take place at Cantley Park (DN4 6HE) and follows on from the side's 2-1 away win at Lincoln City two weeks ago.

Academy manager Mark Smith looked forward to the game: "It was frustrating to have a week off after getting a decent result last time, so it would have been nice to quickly play another game.

"We had a bit of a break instead and the players had the weekend off before getting back into training this week, it's been hectic with the new intake of scholars for next season also in.

"Doncaster are always one of the tougher teams so it's a really good game where we can test ourselves against one of the stringer sides in the league. They are usually quite aggressive so it should be interesting.

"A lot of the second years are now coming into their final month and a half where they need to be producing performances to help us make decisions on them. Everyone knows what's at stake and we're looking forward to it."
