New signing Tom Denton has spoken of his delight at joining Chesterfield after being brought in from Alfreton Town for an undisclosed fee.

Speaking to Spireites Digital, the 29-year-old striker said: "I'm delighted to be here. I've been here before watching games and when it gets going here, it's buzzing."

Describing his style of play, the 6' 7" forward said: "I like to hold the ball up and bring others into play. I also like to help the lads out at the back, defending set-pieces, which I think is important as well."

Denton has been in good form so far this season, scoring six goals in the first eight games to help Alfreton to third place in the National League North. "Hopefully I can carry on my form here," he said. "I'm coming here to work hard and I'm fit and ready to play when called upon."

The Yorkshireman is no stranger to the National League, having won promotion with FC Halifax Town and then played for a season at this level prior to starting his second spell at Alfreton in May. "I got 12 goals, so I was happy with that," said Denton. "I got 12 goals by February but then I didn't play again until the end of the season after a change of manager who had a different way of playing."

Denton began his career at Wakefield before being signed by Huddersfield Town in 2008. He then had a series of loan spells including a stint at Cheltenham Town, where he was given his Football League debut by Martin Allen.
