Raglan: "It's all about next season now"

The Spireites ensured League One survival with a game to spare, but defender Charlie Raglan sees plenty of room for improvement as the players head off on their summer break.

Raglan says that balance among the squad is important, with the older heads able to offer their experience to the more youthful squad members.

"We have got some good players and some inexperienced ones as well, it's about keeping those good players together and bringing through the young lads.

"The older players can help the younger ones and if we we'll try to bring in the best players we can get - it's all about next season now and we're looking forward to that."

In a season that seemed to see almost every Spireites full-back fall to injury, Raglan has played in an unfamiliar right-back role in recent weeks, and the 23-year-old says he's gained further experience in the new position.

"It came about because Liam O'Neil was injured," he said. "I also had an injury for around a month and then played at centre-back against Oldham when Liam got injured. 

"We've been down to the bare bones and you can say we've been unlucky it those positions. I came in and tried to do a job, I feel like I've done okay, you can see that sometimes it's not natural to me but hopefully it's improved me as a player.

"I'll be taking it on board as an experience and a positive thing with being able to play in two positions."
