Sinnott: "It’ll be a tough and good week for us."

8 July 2017

Chesterfield midfielder Jordan Sinnott, says he’s relishing next week’s training camp in Spain.

Sinnott scored his first goal in Spireites colours in yesterday’s friendly win at Buxton and impressed once again in midfield, but while for many a trip to Spain means sun and sangria he’s anticipating a hard week.

Talking about the upcoming trip to iFollow, Sinnott said: “It’s not too bad is it?

“It’ll be a tough and good week for us having a change of scenery, I’m really looking forward to it.”

The former Huddersfield man joined the club last month on the same day as fellow new signings Delial Brewster and Jerome Binnom-Williams.

Normally moving to a new club can be a daunting experience for a player, so how easy has it been for Sinnott to settle in at the Proact.

“Very,” he asserted. “That’s been a credit to everyone at the club the players and the staff.

“Everybody has been so welcoming to me and the other new signings. The trip away will be good for bonding and get us ready for the new season.”

The midfielder featured in all three of this week’s friendlies against non-league sides Sheffield FC, Matlock Town and Buxton.

During his appearances he’s played in a midfield three in various combinations, playing in that formation is nothing new for him however, having played in that formation throughout his career.

He said: “I’ve come through at Huddersfield and have been coached in that system by (Spirietes assistant manager) Steve Eyre, so I know what he wants from his midfielders.

“The manager has been working a lot with the midfielders, especially with the rotation, it’s not just going to get the ball off the back three but also to play off the front and make runs in from behind.

“I’m thoroughly enjoying it and learning a lot.”

Sinnott earned himself a reputation for grabbing goals from midfield while at Halifax and he now hopes to do the same in the blue of Chesterfield.

He got off the mark from the penalty spot at Buxton after Brewster was fouled, so did he have any nerves when picking up the ball?

“No, I hope not it’s only 12 yards out!” added Sinnott.

“As soon as it was given I wanted to get on it and get my first goal, that’s what I’ve come here to do and I want to carry it on into the season.”
