Luke Rawson scored twice in the youth team's 4-1 victory over their Huddersfield Town counterparts at the weekend.

The young Spireites took the lead when some good play down the right-hand side ended with Rawson finding the net with a well-taken header from Josh Turner's cross.

Huddersfield equalised following a defensive error to leave the two teams tied at 1-1 at the break.

Chesterfield regained the lead early in the second half when Rawson produced a composed finish following some good play in midfield. 

Brandon Howard then intercepted the ball around half-way line and went past three or four players before firing across keeper to make it 3-1.

Matthew Fuertado added a fourth goal with a low diving header after a good passing move.

Coach Darren Molloy said: "It's great for the lads' confidence and confirms and backs up what we're tryng to work on. 

"The first half was 50/50. We could have done better, but we played some good stuff and went one-nil up.

"A mistake led to their goal, which balanced the game up and it became franctic and a bit scrappy. 

"Thankfully, the lads grasped what we said at half time, kicked on and scored four really good goals."

Spireites: Wharton, Howard, Gibson, Render, Wild, Bradbury, Turner (Smith 63), Walker, Amantchi (Foster 55), Rawson (Grierson 81), Fuertado.

Unused substitutes: Ambler & Geeves
