Three players whose contracts are due to expire are being offered new deals while seven have been told that they are not being retained.New deals will be put to Rai Simons, Jake Orrell and Jake Beesley, but Drew Talbot, Chris Herd, Jordan Slew, Byron Harrison, Mani Dieseruvwe, Michael Onovwigun and Aaron Chapman will all be leaving the club.
Simons scored five goals in 22 appearances in his debut season for the club after signing from Ilkeston last summer while Orrell, who was recruited after impressing on trial in pre-season, made one start and three appearances as a substitute. He also had a spell on loan at Matlock Town.
Beesley, who turned professional 12 months ago, has not made an appearance during an injury-affected season.
Talbot's departure brings an end to his seven-and-a-half-year association with the Spireites. He initially arrived on loan from Luton Town in January 2009 before signing permanently the following summer. The 29-year-old scored 19 goals in 277 appearances for Chesterfield.
Spireites manager Danny Wilson said: "It is a difficult time when players come to the end of their contract, with all the uncertainty. I hope the players who are leaving us have enjoyed their time at the club and I wish them all the best. Hopefully they can kick on and enjoy future success."
