John Sheridan will take a strong squad to Staveley Miners Welfare for Saturday's opening pre-season fixture.

The match, which kicks off at 3pm, will provide Spireites fans with their first opportunity to see some of the new signings turn out in a Chesterfield shirt.

The likes of Anthony Gerrard, David Buchanan and Liam Mandeville are expected to feature at Inkersall Road as the Spireites begin their build-up to the opening game of the season on August 3. 

Admission is priced at just £5 for adults and £3 for concessions with Under-16s admitted free of charge.
