While naturally disappointed with the result on Saturday, Charlie Wakefield was delighted to make his full debut for the Spireites and is ready to work hard to establish himself in the side.
Speaking to ifollow Spireites, Wakefield said: “I enjoyed it. I got changed at half time but it was good to start and get my first appearance for the club.
“There’s always things to learn from other players like Robbie (Weir), who’s talking to me all the time."
After breaking into the side just a few months after signing his first professional contract, Wakefield is ready to knuckle down in a bid to enhance his chances of regular selection.
“Pre-season has gone really well for me," he commented. "I came back really fit and I’m just trying to work hard now training has died down a bit. I’ll get back in the gym and work.”
Reflecting on the 3-1 defeat at home to Grimsby Town, Wakefield said: “It was a good performance, but it’s not good to lose. We had loads of chances first and second half with not much luck - they blocked a lot of shots.
“We’re always going to be disappointed with the result but we can’t get too downbeat about it. We just need to focus on the next game and see what comes up.”
