The fixture dates for the Spireites’ Checkatrade Trophy Group Stage matches have now been confirmed.
Gary Caldwell’s men were placed in North Group F in the draw that took place earlier this month alongside Bradford City, Rotherham United and Manchester City U21s.
The Spireites will start their campaign with a home tie against Stuart McCall’s Bantams on Tuesday, August 29, 7pm, before travelling to Rotherham’s AESSEAL New York City Stadium on Tuesday, October 3, 7pm.
Manchester City’s U21 team will then visit the Proact in the final fixture on Wednesday, November 29, also a 7pm kick off.
The winning team in each fixture will receive three points, while any match that finishes in a draw after 90 minutes will be settled by a penalty shoot-out, with the victorious team gaining an additional point to their tally (both teams automatically receive a point for the drawn match).
Both the group winners and runners-up progress to the round of 32.
