The Spireites have moved to lessen their goalkeeper shortage by signing Liverpool goalkeeper Ryan Fulton on a season-long loan deal.

The 6' 3" 'keeper spent the second half of the 2015/16 season on loan with Portsmouth, appearing 12 times in the league, as well as against Bournemouth in the FA Cup, as Pompey reached the League Two play-offs.

Originally from Burnley, the Scotland youth international has been with Liverpool since the age of 11 and the Spireites beat-off competition from a number of other clubs to seal the signing of the highly-rated goalkeeper.

Spireites number one Tommy Lee will miss the start of the League One season after undergoing shoulder surgery and Fulton is expected to start the season as his new club's first option between the sticks.

The 20-year-old has travelled to Hungary for the training camp, joining his new team-mates as they continue their pre-season preparations.
